Stories that weave, type that zooms, things that fade away
MetadataShow full item record
I do not deny that I am fascinated by type that zooms across the screen, animated characters, fast paced video games, mouse-overs that make objects dance, and images that appear and disappear. It is not just me. The allure and the appeal of the moving image is making the visual language of motion commonplace, whether on-line, in television advertisements, or in movie-title sequences. From this initial attraction, my work delves into two areas of personal interest. The first is story telling: what is the relationship between traditional narratives and the visual language of new media? The digital narratives are the manifestation of a working methodology that questions the result of combining labyrinthine structures, algorithmic controlled objects, video games, three-dimensional spaces, film, and motion for the sake of motion. The second is the transforming translation of the visual language of new media into printed formats. Motion and interactivity dramatically change the way narratives are communicated; multiplicity and malleability become fundamental elements of writing in an inherently static medium. Reading becomes necessarily both spatial and participatory.
