Action Painting (Masculine Expressionism), by Jeremy Rotsztain, is a series of “action paintings” in the style of Jackson Pollock, composed using data from action movies as material. Thi work uses popular action sequences from cinema – when Jason Bourne drives backwards through the streets of Paris in a nail-biting police chase, when the underdog Rocky Balboa battles Apollo Creed, when a helicopter chases a high speed train through a tunnel in Mission Impossible. It takes these sequences from the adrenalin-filled culture of action cinema and playfully transplants them into the highbrow cannon of modernist painting. Action Painting runs with custom authored software (written in C++ with openFrameworks) that uses computer vision to analyze movies for motion.
