Kinetic Final Piece


After being off for a few weeks, due to personal issues. I was looking forward to coming back and getting stuck into a really exciting new project. The next project, is, Dialogue Ignites Change: Conflict/Resolution, Which I am not completely understanding just yet, but hopefully after today I should understand what I'm doing, but honestly am not looking forward to doing it. I wanted to actually be able to sit and do some Illustration work -.-

My group got our marks for the Kinetic Project, which were not the greatest marks being honest, but hey, I got 40, so at least I didn't fail.

Also got my mark back from the first essay we did for Critical Studies, which I thought I had possibly failed, but I got 53% so yay. (Beats my essay score last year too) but I've never been good at essays so I'm happy with this mark.

Kinetic Art, responding to music.

(Responding to metal music, angry, loud, in your face)

For our group project, The Kinetic brief. After going through a few ideas within the group, we decided we were going to do a kinetic art piece, by using mark making with a variety of different media and materials. The mark making would be formed from our responses to music and noise. So over the half term we all went our seperate ways and tried out different types of mark making, listening to different styles and genres of music, to get different feels and outcomes within the seperate pieces of work. These are some of the mark making pieces that I had done, trying to respond to musc in different ways, such as the mood of the song, the beat, tempo, lyrics or even expressing different emotions.

Norman Perryman

Norman Perryman is known as a Kinetic Artist/Painter.

In 1973 Perryman began to work as a performing artist on glass plates, placed on a series of overhead projectors, interpreting music visually in real time. In contrast to the trend of creating digitally generated video-projections, Perryman has developed an economic low-tech alternative that retains the sensual organic qualities of the colours and the gestures of painting by hand. The light of the overhead projectors shines through Perryman’s glass plates to give the transparent colours an extraordinary luminous intensity when projected on a giant screen. As they listen, the audience watches the evolution and dissolution of Perryman’s abstract images. The magnified images from five or more projectors are mixed by hand with an analogue dimmer. Perryman’s semi-abstract, lyrical expressionist visuals are not illustrations, but rather images keyed to the ideas and feelings of the music, enriching the musical experience yet remaining in the memory as powerful works of art in their own right. Perryman calls this art form kinetic painting, because it is a continuously changing sequence of colours and forms that only exists in real time, then disappears forever. His paint-brushes also move to the rhythms of the music and make the liquid watercolour splash, pulsate, pulsate, flow or spread continually.

Love this work my Norman Perryman, I think it is an unusal way of working and it looks brilliant, the use of colour is amazing and the 'loose-ness' of the work lets different moods/emotions come through within the seperate pieces.
