61 minutes running time • Color • Widescreen • No Sound Our first DVD Painting was very successful. The second in our series is an original painting composed of completely new elements from our spontaneous improvised studio sessions. Bill Ham’s unique use of the overhead projector, as a painter’s instrument for direct spontaneous painting, brought kinetics to abstract expressionism. This DVD painting is a one of a kind visual odyssey. Play it on any screen or project it in your own home along with your favorite music. The Painting Process: Bill paints using overhead projectors. Each overhead projector has layers of glass, oils, pigments, other liquids and transparent materials that create rich interplays of shapes, colors and textures. Multiple projectors are used simultaneously and their projection onto a screenresults in a single image. This imagery is not computer generated. The visual continuum, the changing forms and variations of movement and speed are all controlled by the artist. In light painting, like in music, time becomes a compositional element. The DVD Painting’s final orchestration is accomplished with computer programming.
