Animation & compositing
Topologies is an instalment of the 'Strata' Series by the visual artist Quayola. The subjects of these new pieces are two iconic paintings from the Prado Museum’s collection: “Las Meninas” of Velazquez and “L’ Immacolata Concezione” of Tiepolo. Following the rules behind their visual composition and colours, the two masterpieces have been transformed into digital fabrications through the use of custom software. Topologies consist in the exploration of the digital objects created by this transformation process. The outcome is not a narrative film but rather separate objects of contemplation... Literally “digital paintings”. Commissioned by onedotzero for the BFI Gallery, London.
