Responding to the Open Call for Submissions here on the NET-ART website comes a collaborative animated GIF / Video Art piece from MFA/MA Graduate students at LIU Post. (A few of the students are CUNY alumni)
“WE” is a collaborative Video Art / Animation
“We” Our ART550 class of fourteen people came together to create the project we call “We”. That is what is important. That is all that matters. The separations we perceive between ourselves are artificial. We are more than just our looks and the skin on our bodies. We all share the same basic human characteristics. This concept is a worldview that is incredibly common, but this piece proposes another idea entirely. The skin is not a wall separating and ostracizing individuals, but rather a bridge, connecting pieces of a whole. When we are near each other we can feel how we permeate togetherness. We act like an ocean and each so called self is a singular drop of a shade of color needed to cascade into the intense spectrum that is We. We, as work of digital art represents the preservation of our class energy throughout time and the way we view our experience as a whole. Through technology and art we are preserving ourselves in unity and our interconnectivity forever.
