[Work in Progress]
“As light shifts, so does our perspective of it and the world around us. Nothing is ever what it seems.”
“Illumination” is an on-going project that is composed of a series of short 3D composited live-action scenes. Each short is meant to represent
the comparison between language (how it can often be misinterpreted) and self-illuminating light (how it governs the way we live our lives).
This visually seductive series will be a satirical juxapostion between sexual and immoral imagery and romanticized poetic phrases, depicted in
computer generated neon lights. As the main focus, poetry and its multitude of meanings and intrepretations will be illustrated through simulated
melting light radiating out of the neon signs - personifying “language” as “liquid”, and how words can easily be misconstrued. “Illumination”
is a non-narrative visual experience that calls attention to everyday “after-dark” establishments contrasting them with the “double-meaning” of
contemporary alternative poetry.
E.G. A scene of a Adult Strip Club with a neon sign composited that reads “I enjoy making love to your eyes” where the “XXX Live Nude
Girls” neon sign would typically be.
