To Hear a Painting

Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis, a Lithuanian composer and painter, merged elements from both fields to create paintings that seemed to transcend beyond a visual experience. By applying music theory to his artworks, he approached painting in a similar way he does to composing music. He transforms the strokes on canvas into an image that seems to come alive and speak for itself – a style that is meant to manifest sensations for both seeing and hearing. This article kind of reminded me of the animation project -through digital media, although we have not created both a visual and auditory experience (yet), we did make artwork that comes to life to convey a purpose and message.
