    • The Man Who Turned Paper Into Pixels

      [NEW VIDEO ALERT! Here's our latest video essay https://vimeo.com/delvetv/bananas-sardines-sharks] It was the change that no-one saw coming: the idea that we could take a book, a painting or a song and send it through cables and wires and even thin air to the other end of the world - and it would be identical on the other side. But this idea underpins everything about the Information Age we live in. How did we make such a mind bending transition into the digital world? And how does it work? It turns out it's all based on a concept that is surprisingly beautiful in its simplicity. This short video essay explores what that idea is and tells you about the man who figured it all out. Computers are everywhere and control almost every aspect of our lives. In the next 6 minutes you'll find out how they really work. // DELVE DEEPER: Curious?

          Revealing The Truth: Long long time ago a stranger asked me to make his portrait... So I did. I sent him the image and I never heard back from him again since that moment. Than I saw one painting and I felt that it was very familiar to me: http://www.tadaocern.com/VincentVanGogh/VVGP.jpg And then I got it - It was a copy of my photo! I did a little research on that and it seem that the guy who draw(copied) it is quite well known around... His name is Vincent Van Gogh and I was lucky enough to make his portrait. Pity that he never mentioned me and I can't find his contact now... This video is a comparison of both images. ----- Photo and Video © 2013 Tadao Cern www.tadaocern.com www.facebook.com/tadaocern www.behance.net/tadaocern www.instagram.com/tadaocern Music by music genius Chilly Gonzales 'White Keys' ------ Explanation for people who got confused: text above is just a joke. This image is a digital recreation of the artist's most iconic self-portraits using photography and digital retouching. The video is a comparison of a painting and my image.

          • Vincent van Gogh in Arles

            In Arles one can visit several places where Vincent van Gogh lived and worked towards the end of the 19th century. Very interesting walking tour that will take a few hours, but not knowing of it in advance, we had no time to see all of it. Just one technical note: PaintShopPro has this very easy option to add borders to a picture which I haven't been able to find in PhotoShop yet. When I hear this version of the Moonlight Sonate, which has been used as background music, then I can't help thinking that Beethoven must have intended it as a piece for guitar instead of piano. So cristal pure ... This video has been slightly modified after a remark from Ray, who had detected an error in the first version. Thanks again Ray!!!

                As a study project I have made this tribute to Vincent van Gogh with as background music the beautiful song that Don MacLean made about the Dutch painter many years ago. In order to get this final result, first 4 seperate videoclips were made using PhotoStory and they were mounted together with Adobe Premiere Pro resulting in a superb full HD 1080p format movie. To put it on internet however Vimeo converts it to the 720p format in order to obtain a more reasonable size. Thanks to PapaJohn who suggested on his website how to make all kinds of unusual video formats in PhotoStory Additional Technical Information: The first video is the “Intro” which fills the whole full HD screen (1920 x 1080). It is created with PhotoStory3 while most of the preparatory work is done with Galleria’s Collage Maker (I think it was v2.03 then, now v3.06), an easy to use piece of shareware however with a free trial period of 31 days). First build the whole collage and when completely satisfied save it as a JPG graphic. Then remove one by one the elements of the collage, in the reverse order of how you want them to appear in the slideshow afterwards, and each time save the intermediate picture as a JPG graphic (the last one is the empty canvas). Import in reverse order all those JPG’s in PS3 (after a suitable pre-stretch of course), add appropriate transitions and render it using a full HD profile. The main part of the video is made of 3 separate slideshows all created in PhotoStory3, and each occupying its part of the screen. On top a slideshow with paintings of flowers as background for the lyrics of the song in a rather special 1920x120 format. The second slideshow on the left, with various paintings of Vincent van Gogh, has a standard 1280x960 format, while the one on the right showing his self-portraits has a 640x960 format. The final result was obtained by knitting everything nicely together in Adobe Premiere Pro. After a first try it was clear that the project needed a “final touch” to soften the interface between the fields; this was done by scaling down (90%) the two lower videos and provide for each an appropriate mask.

                      This experimental short film was made for Minneapolis and St. Paul's 4th annual Nuit Blanche, Northern Spark [www.northernspark.org]. It was partially funded by a seed grant from the Hennepin Theatre Trust as part of their MADE HERE initiative, and was shown - in a limited capacity - the night of June 14th, 2014 projected on an interior wall on the second floor of the old National Camera Exchange building at 10th St & Hennepin Ave, downtown Minneapolis [hennepintheatretrust.org/madehere]. This is the first time I have translated my techniques for making photographic light drawings into a video format. You can see some examples of my photographic light drawings here: http://brianmatthewhart.com There are certain aspects of this film which can only be seen by a camera. If you have a film or digital camera with the ability to take bulb exposures - or even a long exposure app for your smart phone - you can reveal things unseen by the naked eye. Exposures as short as 3 seconds reveal hidden images embedded within the moving frames of this film. Changing your exposure time and the moment you start your exposure will produce different results, so feel free to try a variety of shots
