The Motion Project was a collaboration between a lot of clever creative people working together to create a machine that turns motion into music. The client for the project, Frucor (makers of V energy drink), together with their agency Colenso BBDO, kitted-out a warehouse space for this project to grow in and gathered together a group of talented people from a number of creative fields.
We created and designed the live visual spectacle with a music video being produced from the results. We wanted it to be clear that the technology was real and actually being played live. The interface plays a key role in illustrating the idea of the instrument and we designed it to highlight the audio being controlled by the dancer. Design elements like real time tracking and samples being drawn on as they are played all add to authenticity of the performance. The visuals are all created live and the music video is essentially a real document of the night.
Embrace (2012) is a 2D motion graphics work that combines live action video of a dance performance with graphic effects to demonstrate an artist’s journey towards creative ecstasy. By using a visually rich multi-planar space in tandem with three distinct color palettes, Pearsall reveals the difficult and time-consuming creative struggles that are a necessary component of the artistic process.

SEA MOVIES IS A SERIES ON KORDUROY.TV MADE POSSIBLE BY REEF
Maybe you saw the video “Good Morning”( vimeo.com/30096787) The shots I used in this new video “The boat is leaving..…” were made on the same morning near the city Kampen. This video begins where the first video ends.
It was a peaceful and beautiful morning with great colours and fog. Three people let down a boat in the water and so I made these images…. with all kind of associations and feelings.
Are they leaving forever.... to another world?
