ArtPrize 10 - September 19th - October 7th, 2018
Held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, my home state, ArtPrize is a massive, international art competition that brings together over 1,000 works of art from all kinds of artists. I am excited to be a participating ArtPrize artist for the first time this year with my entry Curb Appeal. Using the original still images from the series as the source material, I have reimagined the presentation of the work by animating the different elements across a one minute time frame within a motion graphics application. The four resulting "Cinemagraphs" introduce new narrative possibilities and expand the meaning and depth of the work. The choice to incorporate motion necessitated a digital monitor for display, this led to the design of the minimal, sculptural display for the work. The square format of the original works required the matting of the screen to match proportions. The design and construction of the stand fulfilled an ever-present need to bring my digital, pixel based works, into a concrete, tangible form.
My entry is located in the DeVos Place convention center. If you are coming to Grand Rapids for ArtPrize, please be sure to come by and see it! My vote code is 68104. The link to my ArtPrize entry is: http://www.artprize.org/68104
