In and Around The Barn – Red Projection


This is a continuation of my previous “Color Experimentation” project. {Leander Edmiston and myself(Dan Manion) have begun to experiment with a series of color-based video projects. Our aim is to explore the many facets of color, including its incorporation into storytelling and its emotional associations. Ambiguous and undulating inks confront the viewer with an escape from reality. Together we have begun creating organic-esque, complex, and abstract “colorscapes” that reference the natural world.}     This first edited video entitled “RED” is an example of my fascination with back and forth submergence into a created dreamlike space. With help from Nathan from the Create_Space, I was able to project this video at the gallery show entitled “In And Around The Barn” held this past month at The Dairy Barn.  ...

This project focuses on creating an experience which combats the overwhelming amount of digital and social stimulation that exists in the world today. I wanted to create a tranquil environment with light and color, that viewers could escape to, ignoring their phones and computers for a time. The pattern is dynamically generated in Processing. The program is designed so that every frame of time is unique and no moment will ever be repeated, giving the viewer a new and different experience every time they interact with it. This also provides more context to the piece, as it exists within the same digital medium as the negative stimulation I explored.

We live in a world over-saturated with stimulation. Many people are overwhelmed by this stimulation, whereas others thrive on it. I am exploring the influence of stimulation in the form of color, light, and motion on a person’s emotional states, and the potential of fabricating it with design principles in mind. My goal is to create a dynamic environment to convey stimulation, through the use of projected imagery.        

Scarf typology


Taking multiple photos of me wearing different kinds and colors of scarves to define them. Then, the photos are gathered into one photo, side by side, have the same size and background for easy comparison. The photos are arranged in a black grid collage.

I was invited to submit work to an anthology of artist’s interpretations of the Sandwich, to be published in 2013 by StarGods Press, an independent publisher based out of Toronto, Canada. My medium of choice is ceramics, but I have also been working in digital printmaking and screenprinting. For this project, I wanted to use the aesthetics of traditional 2-D cell animation. After creating a sandwich form out of clay, I photographed it with a model. The final print will be two layers – the photograph of the model holding the sandwich that has been desaturated of all color, laying underneath an acetate layer of just the sandwich and cord. This acetate layer will be printed in color. I am exploring many ideas in the studio, but for this project I am interested in the idea of ‘overlaying’ vibrant, lively information over a base layer of blandness. This project will...

This work is an exploration of re-appropriated video in terms of form and color projected in a three dimensional space, also referencing the urban environment and elements of nostalgia.
