This piece was originally shot with a GoPro 3 camera, processed in GoPro Studio using FLUX processing to slow the footage. It was then imported into FCP X, combined with the original soundtrack and some minor processing. The title is quite literal as the footage was shot from a ship traversing the China Sea. This is part of the ambient video works. The piece suggests both ocean and nebula like features.
The work is dedicated to Mike Lawless, an exceptional person that made his life about helping others.
This work, “On China Sea” has been selected for inclusion in the best of selections in this years ARS ELECTRONICA FESTIVAL 2016: RADICAL ATOMS and the alchemists of our time, September, 8th –12th 2016, Linz, Austria.
The piece will be distributed on Blu-ray disc to all Austrian embassies worldwide promoting ARS ELECTRONICA.
