Deliberate fusion of camera, imagination, emotion and expressions. Or just raw fun! I find I just have so much fun seeing where I can go in the way of making the images like this. I dream of them being full size in a big gallery some day. Or on some ones walls. Not just here at flickr. I have four up in my house. That is so cool to see them on the aluminum. But the one of AJ is the only one I did full size. A few can be almost 8 feet. I don't think I will get to see them full size ever. This one here almost was not made at first. I did not see any thing in it. Then after a few months of looking past it it was seen. I have 1000s and 1000s of images that I look at and few will make the cut. But then the naming them is hard to do. I wish I could just have no names. But that is what Jackson Pollock did a lot of. Just a lot of numbers. Not as intimate as names make them. But this name maybe to big. Have fun every one. Hope you enjoy this one. The size of this is 47 inches wide by 19 tall. So seeing them here at Flickr no one really sees them well at all. Mike Michael and Albert (AJ) Patnode - Artist Statement Father and son collaboration Our photographic art is a kinetic motion study, from the results of interacting with my son A.J and his toys. He was born severely handicapped much like a quadriplegic. On December 17,1998. Our family’s goal has always been to help A.J. use his mind, even though he has minimal use of his body. A.J. likes to watch lights and movement. One of the few things he can do for himself is to operate a switch that sets in motion lights and various shiny, colorful streamers and toys that swirl above his bed. One day I took a picture of A.J. with his toys flying out from the big mobile near his bed like swings on a carnival ride. I liked the way the swirling objects and colors looked in the photo. I wanted to study the motion more and photograph the whirling objects in an artful way, I wanted my son A.J. to be a part of it. After all, he’s the one who inspires me. When A.J. and I work together on our motion artwork, A.J. starts his streamers and objects twirling, I take the photographs. Activating a tiny switch might not seem like much to some, but it’s all A.J. can do. He controls the direction the mobile will spin, as well as when it starts and stops. The shutter speeds are long, and sometimes, I move the camera and other times I hold it still. I begin our creation with a Nikon digital camera. Then I use my computer with Photoshop to alter the images into what I feel might be an artistic way. Working with Photoshop, I find the best parts from several images and combine them into the final composite photograph. I consider the finished work to be fine art. The computer is just the vehicle that helps my expressions grow. I take the photographs and A.J. adds the magic. It’s something this father and son do together. After I’ve taken a few shots, I show him the photos in the back of the camera. When the images are completed, I show him from a laptop. He just looks. He can’t tell me whether or not he likes the images, but he’s always ready to work with me again. It offers me my only glance into A.J.’s secret world. We’ve built a large collection of images and I hope the motion and color move you as much as they do me. A.J. inspires me to work harder to understand my life in the areas of art, photography, people, spirituality, and so much more. He truly sets my mind in motion and helps me find the beauty in everyday things.
