Medium: painting, macro-video, mixed media, digital
This video began as high-resolution macro-photography of Mount’s kinetic painting process, choreographed compositions of pigment filled pools displaying a cosmic dance of sorts. This painting process Mount refers to as “Blooming Currents” which has resulted in an ongoing exploration of traditional painting tools and techniques intermingled with a few digital tools that allow Mount to reveal new dimensions or movements from the work.
Ever curious and eager to explore new ground Mount recorded, then pulled apart and reassembled this video as well as creating the soundtrack on his mobile device. “I don’t think most people realize just how powerful pocket computers, or cellphones have become” -Mount
