words and art by w a l t e r w s m i t h

into abstraction | form and data | on the edge of everything there is | a moment in time we can never bring back

There is so much one can say about the possibilities inherent in the creative process. Do we move definitely in a pre-determined direction (unwavering, specific in structure), or allow our intuition (and the tool itself (in my case, the computer)) to guide us. Perhaps a little bit of both. Creating contradictions, beauty, and ambiguities along the way: Magic and loss while searching through memories. Finding that time does not stand still at all, but evolve and return. A returning ecstasy. And so does a work of art. And so too the recollection inherent to its evolution. My video work is a collection of memories, images, and sounds, purposefully or unconsciously contradicting and re-inventing themselves. Disintegrating into loops of color, texture, movement, geometric form, data, time, and space. I want my work to reflect our internal and external existence; to visually and musically create a sense of things happening all at once.

  2. I love this, it is abstract, yet hearkens into the memory in so many ways. The sound track is minimalist and almost dreamlike. It looks as though you have worked long and hard on it. very professional. Keep up the good work, I will be visiting again to look at this.

    • Thanks Mr. XRAYPICS! I appreciate you stopping by and commenting. I am glad you enjoyed the piece and it resonated with your artistic sensibilities. The process is truly experimental. With so many possibilities. I love long flowing ambient music, and I keep trying to extend the length of my videos to mirror this. Looking to do a guiet, simple, meditative piece that will stretch the realm of 15 minutes or more.
