Illuminated Manuscripts is video DVD featuring a series of animations exploring the visionary nature of journeys. Layering an original soundtrack over photographic scenes of temples, waterfalls, forests and doorways, this DVD introduces a new experience of art that draws from video, music, nature, and organic special effects.

The feel of the animations is mercurial with a richly textured and moving series of images that maintain an almost "liquid" feel. This aesthetic lends itself to the artist’s subject matter – the visualization of memory as a journey. That journey is comprised of landscapes and languages that are often experienced in a dream state of beauty and reflection. Memory is celebrated as an active and mysterious force that may create and then dissolve sacred places, paths, and moments as it cycles through time. The soundtrack echoes the images with a seamless blend of international music and electronica.

Illuminated Manuscripts invites the viewer into a visual and musical journey that is meant to be interpretive. Places in nature shimmer on the horizon and transform through water and light into new environments and architectures. The impact is dynamic and captivating, inviting the viewer’s own experiences of landscape and memory to convey meaning.

Screen shots from "Illuminated Manuscripts"

This disc is divided into 3 main sections.

MAIN contains 13 animations. These animations are the core of Illuminated Manuscripts. Each piece stands on it's own, but some animations are related in various ways. Parts 3 & 4 are from an ongoing series related to the nature of light and how it progresses thru days and seasons as well as memories. Parts 5-12 are related as part of a larger concept, the "Journey Cycle". This cycle is an interpretation of the classic stages of a mythological journey. It is presented as a remembrance of the journey experience written in an ancient manuscript.
Choose "Play" on the main screen menu to start MAIN.

The AMBIENT section contains new & remixed work of a more relaxed and meditative nature. Ambient also contains more abstract imagery. This section is made to work as a meditative trip.
Ambient will continue directly from the Main section or may be chosen from the menu.

The FEATURES section includes a gallery of related still work as well as the LOOPS. The LOOPS are 6 moving sections, each of which will repeat indefinitely. The LOOPS will continue until you press the "enter" key on your remote. For those using a computer, you may click anywhere within the image to return.
