A brief history of art LOL! Ten iconic artworks from Michelangelo to Escher superimposed on an abstract video track with an ambient, trance soundtrack. From the description...
I’ve long wanted to incorporate images of iconic paintings in my videos. Some images are more iconic than others but these are some of my favorites. The first two images are by Michelangelo - ”Creation of Adam” from the Sistine Chapel and his “Vitruvian Man.” Next up is “Harlequin’s Carnival” by Miro and “Starry Night” by Van Gogh. Then Manet’s “Le Bar aux Folies-Bergere” and two M.C.Escher etchings - “Convex and Concave” and “Bond of Union.” Then Seurat’s “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grand Jatte” and Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring.” Then a subliminal advertisement from Coke; a Vasarely painting - “Vonal-Stri;” and Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus.” Then a Kandinsky abstract painting - “Yellow-Red-Blue.” Interspersed in all this are a few images of heads and other abstract imagery found on the internet.
The video opens with a sensuous, pink undulating shape which to me suggests the discoveries of the 16th century Italian anatomist and physician - Falloppio (more commonly known as Fallopius). His Wikipedia page is fascinating reading...
Anyway this opening imagery suggested to me the origins of life which, of course, leads into the Birth of Adam. There are obviously many other paintings that I could’ve used - maybe in another video.
For the “background” imagery I used custom objects in Matter which I reflected on other abstract imagery and which I then mirrored in LumaFusion.
The soundtrack is exclusively LayR - about six tracks recorded in Multitrack DAW and exported to LumaFusion. I kept the BPM in these six LayR tracks to either 60, 90, or 120.
I hope you enjoy watching and listening!
