The Rose

Collaboration between Mark Chavez and Ina Conradi Chavez

The shadow of a rose ripples across a field of color that creates a romantic interpretive work that harkens field lyrical abstract expressionist paintings from the mid-20th century. “The Rose” is an audio reactive work placed on an animated pin screen that takes six versions of Claude Debussy’s Clair de Lune creating an ever-changing field of electronic animated painting. It is homage to the animation technique invented and developed by Alexandre Alexeïeff and his wife Claire Parker’s studio in Paris, in 1930’s.
