Artists are living in a time where visual language is being redefined by
technological means. In this course the visual dialogue of painting will be
applied to the moving image. The digital software will influence and shape
the ways the student perceives and carries out the practice of video
painting. The visual dialogue of painting will be applied to motion graphics.
This will be primarily evident in the way the application of the software
process is applied to the graphics. The projects are geared so that images,
color grids and found video will be transformed by applying effects, filters
and modes. A variety of image material will be utilized such as still
photography, text, color grids and appropriated open source video. The
images and video will be treated on a timeline in After Effects through the
use of key frames affecting the opacity, scale, position and rotation of
objects along with filters.
