The guiding question for my investigation was “How can I show motion in art?” Whether it be motion visible to the naked eye or motion that is unseen yet sensed.
My sustained investigation shows evidence of practice through my work with photoshop and photography. By using these two skills in almost every piece, I sharpened my ability to take good photographs and edit them. Being self taught in both, I had to experiment with different techniques that I researched, for example I learned how to take high shutter speed photos for piece 4 in order to emphasize movement. I also experimented with collage and found that it conveyed an emotion or theme better, and added detail to pieces that I normally could not. Collage also infuses a piece with a sense of motion, like in piece 8 where I used it for the background and layered a hidden element on top. The white lines in slide 8 are the vision pattern of a subject I had looking at the piece. This process of filming their eyes on my phone and then tracing the same movements onto the collage with paint was one I came up with on my own to add a scientific element to the piece. The eye pattern lines were only added after I revised the piece
