YELLOW PALETTE NO.1
Yellow Palette No.1 (2021) is an experimental virtual abstract painting, which was created using a photograph of my physical paint palette as a starting point. The photograph of the palette was imported into virtual reality and then mapped, traced, drawn and extrapolated from using Open Brush software.
Yellow Palette No.1 can be encountered as a (currently) silent slow-play film that unfolds at an extremely slow pace over 1 hour and 2 minutes, which I describe as a 'slow painting'. These 'slow paintings' are an attempt to ask for a different type of relationship with the viewer, one that is potentially more deliberate and lingering, and closer to traditional painting.
Yellow Palette No.1 as a film is in portrait format and is filmed in VR in such a manner as to toy with the audience, almost making the viewer feel like they have turned upside down through its slow revolutions. Full viewing of the film is available on request.
Scrolling down is recommended here to not only reveal a small selection of stills, but also clips taken from the film which was filmed in VR. Scrolling down also gives a small sense of the unfolding abstract narrative that is further supported through this graphic novel-like format.
