Journey: Jose Alvarado

This video was for my 2D Digital Studio Course. I wanted to experiment with perspective and scale by using the camera lens as the entry point to a surreal like environment. This alternate reality would trigger a psychological relationship to the viewer due to the familiarity of the environment. The colors and manipulation of the video represent this subconscious state were our minds wonder and yet possess a conscious awareness of its surroundings. New Media Art is intriguing and I am inspired my several artists like Bill Viola, Javier Roca, and Char Davies work. Although I am a studio artist by heart I believe New Media Art presents a unique form of perspective.

Final Project

For my final project, I decided to create somewhat of a commercial based piece. I study illustration a lot and I've seen how some illustrators use text in their work so I decided to experiment this approach. I was not trying to accomplish an ad for Coca Cola, but after I drew the woman, it's as if the two went with one another and so I combined them for this last project.

Video 1 response (Art 21 Pierre Hyughe)

Pierre Hyughe is a fascinating artist, to say the least. His ideas of working with film are phenomenal. I am interested to see how he relates these ideas to a strange relationship with reality. He often will mix fact with fiction. This led to to make some correlations to my own work, in which I will make connections or draw conclusions from two or more completely unrelated ideas or objects and create a unified concept. The text that he uses is interesting in how it is so simple, yet when viewed, it becomes very complex and the viewer yearns to know more and to figure out what it is the artist is really saying.
