Masonic Temple, Glendale CA
Thank you  Glendale Arts ! For giving us the amazing opportunity to project our vision onto the Masonic Temple in Glendale, CA for the 1st Annual Open Arts Festival.

INSPIRATION

We all had a unique approach to executing our projects. I traveled to México City and Chiapas for inspiration. Through this experience, I had the opportunity to visit cultural + design spaces, see what other digital media artists and companies are doing, research Native Mexican textiles, and explore my traditional art techniques.

PROCESS+ DEVELOPMENT 

I sketched out designs, drafted out the story board, rendered out my shapes and objects, animated on After Effects, and lastly manipulated the video using Resolum Arena.

CONCEPT

“…contemplate the flower and learn from how to live…”

-Eckhart Tolle

Flowers are the ultimate symbol of the most high and sacred; they take a huge part in expressing devotion and gratitude towards the divine.

The ultimate expression of love is always temporary, and so is my life.

Our Earth is full of constant visceral duality and beauty. I wanted the audience to experience it’s wonderment through a digital lens and interact with it using a midi controller.

“Dentro tuyo esta la semilla de la que pueden nacer millones de flores”

-Facundo Cabral

_____

The colors, patterns, and textures were inspired by my trip back home. I wanted to create an explosion of color through geometric patterns and organic shapes.


COLLABORATION

Together we researched, explored, ideated, drafted, prototyped, revised, tested, and executed our ideas.

EXECUCTION 

After weeks of preparing and long hours testing we were ready to VJ the event!

ENGAGMENT

Creating an interact experience was important to us. Audience members were encouraged to come up and participate in the manipulation of our art!
