Casting my net a little further – writing, art and e-motion

e-motion

Art that moves, moving art, the art of moving, moving pictures, movies, e-motion

I like art that moves me and that’s the kind of art I aim to create. What do I mean by art? Anything really, an all encompassing definition that includes writing, new media and multimedia forms. I’m particularly interested in the potential of art and writing on the web, of hypermedia and especially Flash to move an audience/reader/viewer/user.

In this category I want to explore the idea of e-motion – the power of online artforms to move kinetically and emotionally. I’m also interested in the way the viewer/reader/user moves through or into a piece – navigation, yes, but also the immersive power of the experience, which surely relies on engaging the emotions to some extent.

I’m placing markers, dropping anchors, throwing lifelines, buoyed by the potential of this space. Feeling my way around. 🙂 Any thoughts (or feelings), please comment.

  1. You say “I’m particularly interested in the potential of art and writing on the web, of hypermedia and especially Flash to move an audience/reader/viewer/user.”

    I fully agree, and looking at the pieces on your homepage, I’d say that you’re making effective art.
