Hey everyone. I don’t post about myself personally very often here, so first off a big thanks to everyone who’s reading shape+colour and to everyone who sends me their stuff, post ideas, or videos. You have no idea how much it means to me. The best part of all of this is when people share with me things I wouldn’t have found on my own.
I want to let you know about (and invite you to) some new facets to shape+colour: a Tumblr and a Vimeo. Why? Here’s why…
Tumblr has been called a lot of things: microblogging, multi-media blogging, micro-media blogging, whatever. On shape+colour I try to curate my favourtie videos and artists and actually write about them. I think of it as an online gallery magazine; I want to share my thoughts about the work and the artists, and not just namelessly, wordlessly post.
Sometimes, though, I do find videos, images, or work that I think is rad but I don’t have much to say other than that. shape+colour on Tumblr is where I’ve started posting random shots, quotes, inspiration tidbits, and images that I’m into but that don’t warrant (for me) a full post on shape+colour. I also talk about what I’m up to personally. Or sometimes I just bitch and moan. I also swear more there. So, if you’re on Tumblr come tumbl with me.
Vimeo is my favourite site on the net. I live for motion art (as you might’ve guessed) and so I started a shape+colour video channel on Vimeo. My hope here is to loop in more closely and share contacts/likes with other Vimeo users. I’ll be linking to all the videos that I post from Vimeo on shape+colour, but, like Tumblr, I’ll also be adding tons of videos that I like but that I don’t post here. I’m hoping this will create a quicky, sleek, easily searchable portal for all my fave vids on my fave site. So, again, if you’re on Vimeo let’s be contacts. If you’re a film-maker on Vimeo, or someone I’ve posted on before, please let me know so that I can subscribe to your updates.
