Stephen Vitiello

Stephen Vitiello is not like most of the artists that we have studied previously in this class. Vitiello is a sound artist and also a visual artist.  The sounds he produced emphasize the surrounding enviornment. An example of this would be when he recorded in the World Trade Center Tower One about three years before the tower fell down. In the tower he would record the sound of the tower swaying in the air.

All Those Vanished Engines (stereo excerpt, no voice): I like this piece better then the GlassMarimbaFrogCaller ….All Those Vanished Engines changes steadily. I like picking up on certain sounds and trying to identify what it is.

 

 

Final project

My final project will consist of a short animation that is made primarily in photoshop, maybe pencil depending if i am able to understand the software. With photoshop taking a about 50 images for the gif, i may make several sections on the clip and find a way to play them on my blog. (The finished project will be displayed on my blog.) I want the gif to be bigger then the animation assignment we had, maybe slightly bigger. The subject matter will be cartoonish.

 

man v technology

I am going to the make the quality cartoon like in a gif format.  I don’t want any sound on this work. I looked back on the artist Pipilotti Rist, and i enjoy seeing the colors and different angles in her work so i want to incorporate  that style into my final project.

I was inspired buy these photos above. My idea is to make a cartoon about a robot who then looks into the mirror to see his reflection a human boy. The boy and robot mirror each others movement then suddenly the boy makes a random movement then jumps out of the mirror.

Paul Pfeiffer

Background:Pfeiffer was born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1966. He attended San Francisco Art Institute and also Hunter College in New York.

Paul Pfeiffer is a video artist. In his videos he uses the photoshop clone stamp tool to make some aspects of the video to “disappear.”  In his video of people boxing, the boxers are almost ghost-like. Each boxer is in this clear haze that you can see the vague outline of the body’s movement.  This technique would take a long time and effort to accomplish.  For some of the film that was used Pfeiffer did not record it himself, it was recorded by someone else.

I personally like the work of Paul Pfeiffer. The video clips are interesting in a way that objects appear as ghosts.  Pfeiffer worked a long time to produce such a short video clip.

Bill Viola

When i first glanced at Bill Viola’s website, the first thing that came to mind was “creepy.”  His main medium is the use of video. Each video is inspired by a human event such as birth or death, and  even incorporates religion.   Each video variates in time. Watching some video reminded me of the beginning of a horror movie.  Violas work gives a creepy sense, and sometimes i had to watch the video a little longer to figure out what has happening in the work.  If i was just glancing over the videos on youtube and began to watch a video by Viola, i probably would be tempted just to switch to another  video because overall it did not catch my attention very fast.  The video editing in the video can sometimes be incorporated in small amounts that you don’t realize its changing but then slowly you see the changes after a while.  Viola incorporates the element of water into his works. I think with the watch and lighting, thats what makes his work creepy.
