The sequel to PAINTED puts Andrew Wyeth’s ’Christina’s World’ into motion, and explores how bio-electricity galvanizes into discovering muscular intelligence. The light field was setup with 50 lamps, thousands of feet of power cord, and careful visual effects in post. This was shot with 3 cameras in 30 minutes once right after sunset, and then again just before sunrise the next morning. Special gratitude to ’Godspeed You! Black Emperor’ whose music is used courtesy of them, and by permission of Rough Trade Publishing.
