Painting with Light


An oscillating stream of light attempts to intrude on an arid natural landscape, abstract light and a living environment merge, reacting to the dynamics of the music.

The luminous abstract forms are produced by a light-painting machine that, frame by frame, draws in a real environment the 3D animated figures. All are in-camera effects made by a custom built 3 axis machine capable of reproducing, in light, any form designed in 3D animation software. Whilst drawing the forms frame by frame, the machine is also programmable to control all other aspects of capturing the image, camera shutter release, lights and any other external events such as fog machines and motion control systems. The machine was designed and built from scratch by Hamill Industries.
