Click here to see the Living Painting come to life via the magic of Shockwave!
Note: The Living Painting Shockwave file is relatively large (5 MB) and may take a few minutes to download.
The original Director version of The Living Painting was created in December, 1995. It was the earliest stage of an experimental process which I hope to explore futher in the near future. The original acrylic painting is 48" x 36" in size. I took a slide of it, and scanned it into digital form. Once it was imported to Director, I animated it using figures from Life Forms and Poser. The figures were intended to appear as if they were dancing in and out of the brushstrokes, bringing the painting "to life". The animation was also synched to music by Meryn Cadell.
The Living Painting was my first experiment using interactive technology. Once you download the file, you'll see buttons at the bottom of the screen that allows the user to play or stop the piece, or turn the audio on or off.
In Feb. 2002, I finally converted this director file into a shockwave file so I could put it up on the web. Click here to see the Living Painting come to life via the magic of Shockwave!
