Oceans of watery paint swirl and marble in this video collaboration between laptop band Project Jenny, Project Jan, and Turkish artist Hikmet Barutçugil. The style of painting used in the video is called ebrû, or “marbling”, and involves paint floating upon a watery surface, manipulated by special instruments. The resulting images are reminiscent of any number of things, such as: the cosmos, tie-dye, cell structures… its beauty has to be seen to be understood.
Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.
