Title

‘Shan-Shui-Hua’: Traditional Chinese Landscape Painting Reinterpreted as Video Painting: a Hybrid Between the Still and Moving Image, Between Eastern and Western Tradition

Abstract

‘Shan-Shui-Hua’ is an artistic artefact. Proceeding from Chinese thought and aesthetics the traditional concept of landscape painting ‘Shan-Shui-Hua’ (mountain-water-painting) is recreated within the new genre of the video-painting; the main features of ‘Shan-Shui-Hua’ merges with Western moving image practice creating a crossover of Western and Asian aesthetics to explore form, and questions digital visualisation practice that aims to represent realistic space.
