Here, you can see a bit of the process and the trajectory the project took:

Here you can see the final print of the poster, with some accompanying detail photographs:

For this piece, made for the VCU Department of Kinetic Imaging, I decided to merge the world of kinetic imaging with design, photography, and programming. Rather than designing a poster using a designer’s set of the usual digital tools, I created a program/script that creates a poster layout and then sets them in motion.

You can see this script in action here: http://thejsj.com/2012/mfa/kiposter-web/

Then, while running this script, I started taking long exposure photos of my script running. While the script made these figures look very stiff and static, long exposure photography but them in motion, thereby creating a connection to kinetic imaging. I experiment with different layouts, speeds, images, size and colors. At the end, over 300 20 seconds photographs were taken.
