Short Takes: Paint in Motion

For this week's videos I went to various video sites and typed in "paint." A theme quickly emerged: paint in motion. This first video, Tall Painting, shows a painting by Holton Rower in progress as cup after cup after cup of multi-colored paints are poured on top of a two-tiered pedestal and allowed to flow on to the floor in an eye-popping kaleidoscopic ooze.



Street artist Blu, in collaboration with David Ellis, takes the notion of paint in motion up a notch and shows us what a lot of paint, patience, imagination and a video camera can do.



Next we have Metronomy, an unofficial music video of On The Motorway by Jul & Mat. This time the canvas is set in motion as paint is applied, resulting in a high-speed moving Rorschach test.



Lastly, Petros Vrellis has digitized Van Gogh's Starry Night and set it into motion.
