SketchUP Model. December 19, 2009

I have been observing and pondering the gossamer pieces, and more and more forms appear to be floating, swaying as if under water. A benign medusa of sort.

I would like to try my hand at creating a video with this images, and simulate motion. The only videos I’ve done are 3D animations, so working with stills should be interesting, the variety created by different scales, colors, and degrees of transparency/layering.

I also thought about these pieces being installed at such an overwhelming scale so that the image would encompass/engulf the viewer, and the illusion of being underwater or floating -or lost in a good way -could be more complete.

I had in the back of my mind to try out at some point a digital mock-up using SketchUP (since last time I used it I am simply astounded by the variety of resources available and realistic human figures- no more carton man). Then I thought, why not just do it now, and eliminate one item from the long list of ideas for my art and this blog. So here it is. How would it look in a club? It could substitute a whole wall and perhaps be lit from behind to preserve the luminous qualities seen on a computer screen. Perhaps these lights could change color and intensity with the mood, the time, the music.

You may say I’m a dreamer. But I am not the only one.

So here it happens, the siren of Architecture called, and I heeded.

Nay, I relinquished.

Architecture, that capricious muse, finally seeps in my art chamber- yet how could I have kept it at bay?

Architecture is, indeed, frozen music.

If this building was music, what song/genre would it be?

Sir Barry says that some architects of the Baroque era literally applied to their designs harmonic ratios learned from musical intervals and harmonic relations between notes.

I always thought Baroque was the music closest to the act of creating, to perfect mathematical equations, the music of the cosmos. Fractals’ music. Baroque and its clavichords is what I am listening to right now, as I finish a 3D digital model. The model dances and takes form. Digital sculpture.

You must pardon if I wax poetic. I just finished ‘Death in Venice’ and my heart is full of poetry tonight.
