Black & White In Color

Description:

One of my biggest pet peeves in art is the lazily-desaturated DSLR video. “Black & White In Color” is my personal response to treating black and white as an editing afterthought. This short video is the culmination of a year and a half of experimentation with black and white textures. Please note: in some instances, color is unavoidable -- dark purples, greens, and blues separate out of black dye within a few minutes. “Black & White In Color” is the first in a pair of videos that contrast black and white with color, minimalism with maximalism. The paired video is tentatively named “Oversaturated.” Hand-lettered titles by North Carolina calligrapher Dara Linn. Many thanks to the Triangle Calligraphers Guild.
