In many ways, image has replaced written word as the primary conveyor of meaning and emotion in the modern world. But how do we tell stories that matter and find images that resonate?

Begone Dull Care - Norman Mclaren 1949

    Begone dull care is a film animation that tries to visually represent a jazz piece preformed by musician Oscar Peterson. Norman Mclaren and Evelyn Lambert directly altered the film stock, painting and drawing on the frames to create the effects. This is an interesting film because it is abstract yet it is based on the rhythmic flow of the music. Hence, I feel that the transitions seem smooth and each frame to be well executed. Towards the end, I felt almost hypnotized and I feel that it is a clear representation of abstract impressionism.
