Time-lapse, Playing With Galaxies?

I started this experiment as play, and it was so enjoyable that I kept playing.

I loved the feeling of quickness and the motion of my hand while drawing the countless repetitions of swirling lines that look like galaxies to me. One by one, increasing and lowering the value created a sense of depth.

It draws you in, I think.

There’s no time to get stuck on overthinking any one thing. You just move across the canvas and end in triumph.

I don’t know what I was thinking with the light blue figures in the middle of the video, but I quite like how it adds a playful bit of cheekiness into the mystery.

Breaking up the rhythmic spell for just a moment – you’re not sure what’s going to happen – then, you’re faithfully led back to the swirling layers of galaxies.

Watching the time-lapse made me like the piece more than I did when I finished it. I think I like it better overall as a video installation than I do a single image.

There’s a few individual moments I like, but I don’t know –

I wasn’t going for anything in particular. Just play. Art has many sides when it comes to perceived value –  esthetic, emotion, invention, etc., but for me, the greatest thing about art is in the act of creating it.

What do you think?

What would you name it? Thoughts?
