I’ve been thinking of ways to piece together, consolidate, and fine-tune the materials I’ve been presenting so far into a more complete series. While these are not finished series yet they are moving into their proper series title through the understanding of their relationship to the concept and context of other work. Below are some examples of new work and a video with elements of previous videos more connected.
While I was looking through some very old etchings dealing with the macrocosm and microcosm I came across some interesting illustrations that related our environments to micro planets. This is where I’m getting the title Planets of Existence from. These will continue to expand for the sake of each image leading into the next when put in the context of an experimental film.
While I was looking at more illustrations the dealt with the concepts of macrocosm and microcosm I came across graphical elements that I felt needed to be implemented for the sake of clarity. This image below was inspired by a crescent moon depiction in a book I’m finding most useful called Book of Symbols. This picture illustrates the relationship of the moon orbiting around us and how this movement effects the tides on earth. It also references the “dot” idea once again and how this too effects seasons of life, death (or hybernation), and rebirth.
Below is a video that takes some of my previous material and ties it together. This is bound to change and is the first version of more than one idea presented in a single video for something much longer.
