When it comes to certain projects, I could say that I tend to stay with more traditional methods and don’t always venture out to try more “adventurous” things. I’m trying to expand my horizons but I wouldn’t say that it’s because I’m afraid to try new things, it’s because I haven’t thought of trying them in that context – obviously I need to think more outside the box.
For instance, using firecrackers to create artwork:
I tend to associate smaller explosives with fireworks at celebrations or demolition of larger buildings. I would never have thought to use them in creating large pieces of fine art. Who’d have thought? I guess you can say that David Sena is one of the few (if not the only) as I have never seen art quite like this before. I love it!
I don’t know if there is anything particularly spectacular about the filmmaking here, although it is well made. I think it’s more the topic that really stands out to me. I makes me want to try something like it myself, but for now I’ll stick with what I know as I don’t have a place to safely try out this method of artwork. Perhaps someday…
