Spectacular: 40 different “movable lights”.
Light-painting has long been established as a form of expression in contemporary art, but it was Finnish director Anssi Määtä whose goal it was to go far beyond the boundaries of the genre. Almost a year ago he developed the idea of realising live-painting videos, which do not refer to photos that are then animated by means of stop-motion technique as it is customary. No, Anssi’s goal was to catch as many motion pictures as possible: this way the artist’s entire actions are recorded in real-time with the help of a camera, thus giving the viewer a chance to understand and appreciate the creative process of the final product. The result shows impressive pictures of “movable light” in real-time.
The milestone Mercedes-Benz celebrates is equally impressive: nine million Facebook fans. Reason enough to set up something really spectacular – taking well over 40 different lights, the artist created a kaleidoscope of colours, which he captured in an exclusively produced video.
