Welcome to the 2019 MBS_RMS_NET-ART_COLLAB.

Lets get you caught up and give you some perspective, it would make sense for you to click on this link below first:

Be sure to click anywhere in the browser window and see what happens!

My good buddy and CUNY York College colleague Michael Branson Smith, AKA – MBS, has learned some serious javascript and web design skills that I have been admiring over the last few years. A few years ago we collaborated on projects such as GIF FIGHT & Animating Transit.

And now, well, THIS! –> MBS_RMS_NET-ART_COLLAB  <—

“A long overdue project”, you may say, but alas, here we are. When you arrive at MBS_RMS_NET-ART_COLLAB Feel free to click on the graphics in the collage windows as many a great surprise compositions await you! Enjoy the iterations!

This project begins in html but lets see how it develops! This project is completely generated in the “pass the buck” style.

As of 5/19/19 it is MBS’s turn to add to the html file, publish it on the Internet and then send it back to RMS for more additions!

The Inner Agent

There is an agent inside of you, me and all human beings. The agent is a spy, a diplomat, a spiritual master and a physician of energy and matter. The agent will is coming for you today to activate a doorway, you must walk through it…. This coming week will display the sum total of your most recent internal transformations. You have grown. The fearful side of your ego knows it, and it will attempt to glitch and sabotage the events metaphorically, however, the outcome has already been embedded in {.code}. Well done, see you soon….

The Game Begins, 2019, Video Art

The Game Begins, April 2019, is an animated video art work in progress constructed from multiple individual components. The animated clips were composed and generated with various mobile and desktop applications. They have been layered and and recomposed in Adobe after effects. The video loops repeatedly and is intended for large scale projection presentation. Iterations and experimentation of its presentation are underway. This is an experimental process to fuse together multiple narratives, stories and situational realities. Can it work? Will it work?

Press “Play” above and indulge.

I converted a longer video version of this experiment into an animated GIF here to give a little insight into the testing process. I teach a graduate level new media class at LIU Post in NY and a Digital Storytelling class at CUNY York college where we experiment with many video and animation processes and applications. The projection of video and animated works play a role in the final weeks of the course. It is one of the most important aspects of the class as it breaks free from using the hand held device, monitor or screen as a presentation tool. In this case, the video is projected directly onto 3D objects like stacked pedestals. But as a looping video published via YouTube (above) and inserted into a blog post, Im not convinced it can hold up in this format for long durations of time…well, not yet anyway!
