No Matter What Shape - The Archive

AN ARCHIVE OF MY OLDER WORK - AN EXHIBITION SPACE FOR ORIGINAL AND ALTERNATE VERSIONS OF MANIPULATED WORKS THAT APPEAR AT MICKMATHERSARTBLOG - A PARKING PLACE FOR SELECTED GRAPHICS USED IN OTHER BLOG SIDEBARS - AN ARTWORK IN AND OF ITSELF

In its short-sightedness, blogger has turned its back on those of us stuck with old operating systems and I'm forced to find a new blog host. You will now find MickMathersARTblog at Blog.com - use the direct link found in the masthead and remember to update your bookmarks. This place will continue as another archive for a large body of my work. As many of you know, my primary medium and working method is digital collage composed of manipulated photographs often combined with digital drawing & generative images. Netlabels, bands and musicians can view samples of my CD Cover Art at Mick Mather Illustration located on Tumblr. In another life I was an Arts & Culture consultant specializing in revitalization planning through creative public art projects and programs with Economic & Community Development Departments of towns, villages and cities. In these hard financial times this work is more important than ever and I still accept consultancy inquiries. You can contact me by email at: mickmather@yahoo.com

Land Art Project -

"Kings Court Cube - In Progress, Day Four"
land art sculpture by Mick Mather
The rainy weather has kept me from working on the cube for the past two days. This morning, with a medium fog lending its ambiance to the muted, morning light, I went out to see how it withstood these minimal atmospheric changes. I actually added about a half dozen more pieces but working with the available materials in such a soggy state proved pointless. Anyway, here's a progress report and, just below, a short and quite bad, movie.

How do you work with parts of a video?--I don't know how to do that.

Thanks for the comment and the question. As far as editing is concerned, the software that came with my Kodak Z740 does editing but it's quite minimal. For example, you can snip off beginnings or ends and you can splice ... needless to say, I believe there lies a valuable editing process within that framework but I've had little time to investigate.

Did you "snip off" the end for the art piece?

Mary Stebbins Taitt:
I did snip off the beginning or the end of the video ... the piece itself? LOL, no snipping! :D

LOL ... I'm still confused to. If it's oaky with you then it's okay with me. Or, begin again?

Was the other picture a still taken at the same time as the movie or did you extract it from the movie?

Cold here! Brr. Went x-c skiing this afternoon.

LMAO ... now I get it. The image is a photograph and was not snipped from the video. :D

AH! Well, I like both. I thought I could see at the end of the video where the image MIGHT have come from. But now I know it didn't.

Anyway, I LIKE THEM!
