2001 – An Art Odyssey

Any of my long time bloggiesw ill know that one of my favourite all time SciFi stories is 2001 A Space Odyssey.

For quite some time I’ve been thinking about what piece of work I could do for this. Eventually I chose this one, alshtough I have to say now that I would have done it toally differently now. Even so this work was fun to create and worked withseveral different material and learned a lot.

I might even do it again the right way.

In this scene from the book David Bowman is taken through the stargate and passes over a planet with a seemingly white sky and checkered with shapes like a huge jigsaw. He realises that there are black points of light and what he was looking at was like a negative reality. This piece is based manily on that scene.

I even created a video of clips I made while creating it.

Let me know what you think.
