HongKong Under Construction I Video (did I get the spelling right?).

About This Project

Took me forever. First, I completed "the project" donkey years ago. Loaded it up as a folder on my Gmail account and saved it on my system. That's when the movie twist started.

Corrupted File

My system 'caught' a virus and this infected the files. I thought I had already covered that area (since I had it stored on my Gmail account).

Didn't Work

I tried downloading it from the account and it did not turn out as I expected. Apparently, some of the files were already corrupted before loading it up and that's what Gmail returned back to me.

What Next?

I gave it a long break (like very long a break) and when I attempted to get the folder from Gmail, I was told that they no longer stored folders (I think that is what I was told). So I could not download it.

What Next II?

I started the art work again (and it was real work). It took me about 3 years or more (granted, I did not labor at it day and night everyday). I finally completed the first part, which was to get it frame done (you will have to see it to have an idea of the amount of time I had to put into this labor of loaf-art).
The second part was easier and that was turning each frame into a short movie. I broke it down to 3 distinct stages.

What Next III?

It was a call be Guardian Witness that made me complete the task. They were asking for artistic contributions for their "witness program" and I kind of figured they might be interested in it. They weren't (although I think they accepted, then rejected two other loaf-art artworks).
Having completed the project, I decided to post it here (I knew I was still going to post them here whether they accepted it or not).

WHAT AM I REALLY RATTLING ABOUT?

Let me post the first part here and we might get to talk about it and the others soon (that will be next year). And by the way; Happy New Year!!!

Format

Here's what I'm thinking of doing.
  • Post a video
  • Talk (write) about the video
  • Post the frames that make up each video & talk about them since they are individual artworks, each building on the other(? Not too sure about this yet)
  • Post the next video and repeat the above 
Everything above was done using the Paint Program
