Remember what I was saying about the process gifs? Sometimes at the end of a project I end up with a bunch of screenshots of the piece as it is in progress. It’s neat to flip back and forth like a flipbook and see what changed and what didn’t. I love seeing other artists and their process, so I’m going to keep making these and posting them.
Here’s one of my work “Our Names in Lights” I finished last year. It was a re-do of an older work called “Letting the Cables Sleep” but it’s got a little bit of a different feel to it. I love the idea of simulating long exposure photography in my works. I do it often as I love how such little light can be extrapolated into a whole mood. Sometimes I research some light long exposure photography on my own — I’ll take my old digital camera to an overpass and take some brief photos so I can understand how light can/can’t work when it comes to a long exposure shot. What you end up with is moody darks and bright, oversaturated light sources.
