Description

Motion Light Painting by media artists Eric Freeman and Toshi Anders Hoo. "The Evolution of Fire" is a short film that explores the theme of human's long and evolving relationship with fire, from ancient ritual to modern technologies. Freeman and Hoo have developed an innovative "motion light painting" technique using long exposure, stop-motion photography to create animations with a uniquely organic feel. Using custom fiber optic brushes they paint onto each frame using long exposures (up to 12 seconds) with a digital camera system. The final video is made up of over 900 hand painted frames. The song featured in the video is "Sublimation" by the electronic music project ElderFlux. This is the first video presented by Fueled by Firefly, an artist series celebrating the intersection of art, culture, and technology. Fueled by Firefly will highlight an ongoing series of collaborations with artist, performers and thinkers to stimulate creativity and conversations about the themes and concepts that inspire us.
