There’s No Distance 1.1
Edition 1 of 1 In 2021, I'm working on a new series of videos called There’s No Distance. It builds on sketches from the last two decades and is a direct evolution of my Still Life series of software from 2016. These are images to think with; I use them to think about simulation and the history of pictorial representation. In each video, a rotating Platonic solid is defined mathematically and then rendered as a 2D digital image. The color values for each pixel in the image is used to draw and position a red, green, and blue line in simulated 3D space. That volumetric space is flattened back into the screen to create the final image we see in the video. Some of the historical references are the development of linear perspective in painting, impressionism and post impressionism, analytical cubism, bauhaus foundation exercises, and many late twentieth century paintings, but I feel this work is entirely twenty-first century and essentially of and about digital images. The total series of videos is limited to one set for each platonic solid and one video for each side. The first series with the tetrahedron (pyramid) will have four videos. The first video is this series is There’s No Distance 1.1 Presented video is compressed and a 30 second excerpt from the NFT. The full minted file can be found here.
