About my Tarot deck project …
As a separate, but parallel, project to “Kinomorph”, I’m creating digital pinhole images. My intent with these is to use long exposures to capture stillness, rather than movement. The result is a mood of tranquility – the sense that an essence is being recorded, rather a fleeting moment.
Broadly inspired by the myth of Galatea – a sculpture brought to life by her creator, Pygmalion.
My initial project objective was to try and evoke the mood of the Impressionist painters. I couldn’t attempt that without addressing Degas’ ballerinas.
The original idea for the ‘Kinomorphic’ project – I wanted to recreate the feel of Impressionist art, using long exposures / motion blur and selective focus.
