Video for my New Series

Hi folks: There are really 2 videos. One is the 3 minute version, and the other is the 30 minute version. Both cover the first 25 images in the series, but the second (after repeating the first 3 minutes) delves a little deeper into each of the 25 images. That’s only really about a minute…

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZC7V_-HfTE] This vlog explores a work in progress, showing the various layers, such as the drawing layer over the color layers. I also discuss a claim mace by the editor of Hyperallergic (a very popular online art magazine) that art is not transcendent and never has been. Apparently art is about resisting power on your own terms. I think this guy missed the point of art entirely, while overseeing an art magazine, but fully appreciates radical political ideology. The two can and do overlap, but let's not cut out all other art, and decapitate arts ability to transcend the mundane, which means peoples' ability to do so.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FVza7kXeMk] I've made videos before, but this is more in a "vlog" style, which for me means it's unscripted, and one go. In this first one I talk about my new series (so far), and doing practice paintings. I could have edited out extraneous noises and whatnot, but, in the spirit of the new series, and getting things done, I'm leaving it a little more raw. I can do a better job next time. Which is also why I haven't bothered to make a custom intro yet. But I do like the intro guitar riff. And my background music is sweet, if YouTube doesn't have an issue with it (in which case I'll remove that track). And now back to work on a new image, which I hope to finish before going to sleep tonight, if possible. You can see a preliminary drawing in the video. ~ Ends

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEIAhSJumNc] I think I watch a bit too much YouTube, but because I do I also know it's probably the most popular  and successful way to share information online. And for every video about contemporary art, I'm guessing there are hundreds or thousands of written articles. Maybe there's no audience for art criticism videos, especially if they are at all substantive and not just about why something sensationalist actually sucks. So, here's my first attempt at a semi-ambitious video, excluding the two I made for my own pieces, which are much shorter. This one goes for just over a half hour. I'm just reading my blog post, and slipped in a lot of pictures, but it takes longer to read something out loud, and some of my writing is more convoluted to verbally articulate than to just read. There's room for improvement in future videos. One of the advantages of being an independent commentator is that I can use as many images as I want in my posts, and can make videos and also use as many images as I want. Most art criticism I see is much more limited, partly for reasons of format and consistency, and I imagine for legal reasons as well. ~ Ends

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=If5eH7SBW2c] Sometimes people don't feel like reading, and prefer to just watch a video. Haven't made a video in a while because I haven't had software to do it with. I can just do a basic video with my new software,  but I wanted to try just talking about a piece (not reading anything) and adding images. It's HD, but I could have started with larger images. Next time I'll size them for the final proportions of the video.

The “wh” sound. Humor by me.

I made this video to help people appreciate my piece. Check it out. It's cool. And I uploaded it in high resolution so you can select HIGH DEFINITION and full screen mode on your player to see it in maximal beauty! Hang in for the close-ups. Also the music I chose is very appropriate and cool. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7u8-ooheck?rel=0&w=640&h=360]
