Michael Bell-Smith

Wednesday, October 21st

Falvey Hall, Brown Center


Michael Bell-Smith’s minimal computer animations present, abstracted forms, celestial bodies and vast endless cityscapes that flow across the screen like the backdrops of early arcade games. With a nod towards art-historical developments in painting (perspectival systems) and cinema (the tracking shot, motion control systems), Bell-Smith applies the austere logic of digital media to landscape representation with starkly different effect. Where these early special effects were employed most often to render a world in accord with our senses, Bell-Smith’s work is pared down to a point where the basic contemporary languages of computer graphics and urban planning intersect, resulting in an image of a world where the familiar becomes alien.

Michael Bell-Smith’s lecture is presented by MICA’s Video and Film Arts Department.
