Light and art make a great combination. The modern technology at our disposal gives us an astonishing command over the photon, and artists are saying thank you very much! Brilliant initiative and design comes to Chicago with a fourteen by twenty-three foot dynamic display. The huge screen begins with a crisp image, made of a standard scene from the city and then it begins to change it.
A clever set of programs begin altering the picture, pixel by pixel, according to mathematical formula called algorithms. These processes run through a sequence that is programmed to distort and visually melt the images, creating strange and abstract displays of colour and form. The software scans video that is loaded into the device and seeks ideal images to freeze frame and then work its magic on, bringing countless original pieces of art into being.
Some people prefer to wear their art, and that's fantastic. Choosing to push the boundaries with the clothes we put on our bodies is always fun. This fashion design project by Atton Conrad doesn't use clothes at all. Atton uses light to dress the models, photographed in the flesh, with fancy camera techniques. By having a long exposure shot, Conrad is able to draw clothes around his subject with light sources. His style creates ghostly and sexy demonstrations of what light can do in the right hands.
