Rob and Nick Carter – Digital Art


Rob and Nick Carter have done an interesting world first. For 3 hours you can watch a picture change and alter in relation to its theme. In this case, that of a dead frog. Every detail was done individually so if you look closely enough you can see how each maggot is an individual protagonist to the piece. This form of art brings a different kind of realism to the piece that photorealism only comes close to.

The whole process reminded me of the idea of moving images in portraits and photos in the world of Harry Potter which allowed the images to not only resemble the persona painted physically but also in their personality.

This type of work takes time to view if it is to be truly appreciated and as such immerses you in the world around you by showing you what is always there but which you may not notice due to the fast paced nature of how we live today.
