More dance mixed with motion graphics. I really love the simplicity of the this one, the clean, simple graphic elements and the clear interactions between them and the dancer create a strong image and a feeling of interplay. And although it looses its way in the last 30 seconds or so, there are some interesting visual motifs and I think its definitely worth a watch.

“Embrace (2012) is a 2D motion graphics work that combines live action video of a dance performance with graphic effects to demonstrate an artist’s journey towards creative ecstasy. By using a visually rich multi-planar space in tandem with three distinct color palettes, Pearsall reveals the difficult and time-consuming creative struggles that are a necessary component of the artistic process.”

From the Vimeo description.

The film was made by Ashley Rae Pearsall on the School of Visual Arts’ Computer Arts program.

Water Light Graffiti

More awesome technology-based art installations, this time an interactive sculpture in which people can use water to paint onto a wall of moisture-activated LEDs. Using paint brushes, water cannons and moist fingers, members of the public can create an illuminated, non-destructive, and very 21st-century style of graffiti. I think it’s a great idea.

The installation was created by Antonin Fourneau at the Digitalarti Artlab. It was displayed in Poitiers, France, in July.
