It’s been a little while since I talked about what personal projects I have been working on, so I wanted to dedicate a post to just that. I’ve had a few freelance gigs and travel plans on the go over the past month or so which left me with little time to flush out my own work, but the ideas have been spinning and I’m excited to be at a point where I can talk about what’s coming up.
While attending FITC Toronto last month something important was said by Zachary Lieberman and Golan Levin during their presentation Art, Gesture, Computation, Framework. The quote was repeated throughout other presentations during the event:
“D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself) is great, but I prefer D.I.W.O. which means Do It With Others.”
Great point there. Since the event I have been trying to map out a project where others can dissect from what I do, and learn by example. A tricky task given my main outlet of contact with the creative community is via the web.
So I have begun work on something I’m really excited to get out there, entitled The Signalnoise Source: Vol. 1. This is a DVD release I have been working on over the past bit and will contain around 10 PSD files of compositions (and maybe a few other goodies) at 100dpi with all layers and effects intact for users to see how I go about building my work. My poster PSDs will not be included, the files will be custom-made for this release and maybe a few other pieces I have kicking around the hard drive. A couple of examples can be seen above.
The sole purpose of The Signalnoise Source DVD set is to help others, it’s as simple as that. I’m going to try and get as much cool stuff as I can on there, as this is something I’ve never had the opportunity to pursue before. The price tag is still up in there air as yet.
Stay tuned as I continue work on this, I’ll keep you posted and I can’t wait to get this into the Signalnoise Store, and furthermore into peoples’ hands.
