  1. Interview with Multidisciplinary Artist Rory Scott

    Leave a Comment

    We chatted with multidisciplinary artist Rory Scott and talked to Rory about her experience with animation, c4d and the concept of impermanence through technology.

    As a multidisciplinary artist, do you find it difficult to streamline your artistic process? Or have you found a routine that makes it easier? 

    I’ve streamlined my process by being ok with chaos—to never stop moving and to always be in the mode of making art. But the stipulation is that everything I do must relate back to advancing my ongoing 10 year project.

    As impermanence is a central theme in your work, do you find that sharing your work digitally is a way to reconcile with that? Or do you think digital mediums also have a level of impermanence to them? 

    Funny enough, I often use my Instagram stories as an informal way to address/observe impermanence. For example, I love taking time-lapse movies of life just going by and seeing the patterns that emerge with time being slightly sped up.

    Digital mediums have both a level of impermanence and permanence to them. Once you release something, you have to be prepared for it to be out there forever. On the flip-side I feel like the shelf life for digital work can be volatile—its longevity may depend on the survival of the technologies that made it possible to exist in the first place.

    You do an incredible job at creating different dimensions and realities. Do you have a favorite program that you use when creating animations? 

    Thanks so much! My favorite program is After Effects because of its versatility. I am able to animate, work in VR and pull in elements from Cinema 4D.  Which gives me a lot to work with.

    Is there a particular artist who inspires you, or whose work you’re excited about?

    Tara Donovan. Her work is beyond and embodies every element that I love and appreciate about art.

  2. 5 New Media Artists on Where They Find Inspiration

    In the age of new media and digital art, it can be easy to get over-stimulated and lose inspiration. Creative blocks are difficult to get through, which is why we’ve collected some insight from a talented pool of New Media artists. Here are some of  their top tips for finding inspiration:

    “I keep a secret folder with all of my references that I can go back to for inspiration[…] Conceptually I use nature and abandoned architecture in society”  (Featured Article Image/Artwork courtesy of  Trimex Collective)

    Vitoria Cribb (@louquai), Multidisciplinary Artist: 

    “I  read a lot about subjects that I’m interested in at the moment. Now I’m studying and searching more about artists who work with different media and how they handle the questions about their work and how they go about sharing their ideas.” (Featured artwork by Vitória Cribb)

    “I get my inspiration from so many places. Traveling, movies, music, nature, psychedelics, love, sex, great conversations, food, museums, architecture and of course, the internet.” (Featured artwork by REO)

    “Cinematography is a giant pull. Living in LA, I quickly adapted to the cinephile lifestyle. Mindless sketching, taking mental breaks through long walks, and recently browsing random library finds are all great conceptual fodder as well. In general, the more steps I take away from my practice, the more I’m able to dig within myself to pull out authentic ideas and feel confident in bringing it to fruition.” (Featured artwork by Blake Kathryn)

    On mathematics and mythology as inspirations:

    “They came from sustained rootlessness mixed with relentless curiosity and concern. I reckon they’ve morphed into something stranger and more intense as the end of the Anthropocene draws closer and closer — nothing like an increasingly urgent need to imagine ways out of the imaginable to fire up one’s creative visions, at least as far as I’m concerned!” (Featured artwork by Alida Sun)
