This is the video of my project from start to finish. However due to the nature of the project and the way I must use my phone for it I was unable to capture a good end image for the video use and will be posting better photos after. It can be found in Fuller’s Subbasement.
This week I have gone to goodwill and obtained my supplies for my project.
Today I plan to smash all the objects safely in a garbage bag.
The cost of all my objects came to:
Garbage bag: free
After this I still have to obtain or buy rubber cement to put all the pieces together and possibly a light if a strong enough one is not available to me on campus already.
Janne Parviainen was born in 1980 in Finland. For the past fifteen years he has been a very popular photographer, and for the last three years he has been dealing with light painting. He also is a painter mostly using oil colors on glass as his medium. The reason he started light painting was by accident. Once when he was taking a photo a night of a street he bumped into his camera causing it to take a picture. The street light caused a streak across the photo thus leading Janne to discover light art. Janne uses a DSLR camera for his photos as well as a tripod, he says this is necessary in order to keep the camera steady or that sometimes its easy to just set the camera on the ground. For the light source he uses LEDs or simply a flashlight. For the most part besides his personal website he says that he prefers to post his photos on flickr and that is where he gets the most online “traffic”. The way his light painting is done is by using a DSLR camera and making it so it takes long exposure pictures. He then moves his light source through the “frame” of the picture leaving behind a drawing. Sometimes Janne involves physical drawings such a chalk or permanent marker as well as the light drawings in a photograph. A must for Janne he says is that after taking the long exposure picture that photo is never run through a program such as photo shop. When asked by an interview why he does light painting he simply said: “Light painting is the most liberating form of art I have encountered; it sums up so many good things in one package that I could never let go of it anymore!”.
Hello, my name is Jonella Esposito, I am a freshman IMGD major. Most of my artwork that I have done have been drawings. I started out with mostly pencil or charcoal drawings. This included basics such as still life drawings or even something as simplistic as gesture drawings. I also took some photos just around my hometown just for my own personal pleasure.
After that I moved on to painting. This was a very recent development in my artistic career. It started off with a very simple drawing done in class during A term here at WPI. And eventually I ended up painting it.
As for tech I have very little knowledge about it. I have never programmed anything, I’m not even much of a builder never even made a sculpture. The closest I have come to doing anything technical combined with the arts is some work I did in Blender as well as the 3D Modeling I class offered here at WPI. Most of my work on Blender is very simple and was done by following other peoples steps and ideas since I had never used a program like it before and was teaching myself.
Other creative arts I practice is that back home I was part of the alto section in a Children’s Chorus that went to France and even sang at Notre Dame. I also in my spare time- mostly during break- play the drums. Most of my inspiration comes from nature I come from a very rural area in Maine so I got to be around the ocean and nature a lot. My artistic goals would probably be to increase my knowledge about 3D art, and also to be better at being more original. While I know there is never any original art everything is based off of something that has been done or seen, I would like to have the ability as an artist to be more free with my ideas.
