A single data structure of animated gestures is used to produce many forms of the "same" artwork.
Each form will be able to be purchased individually, or in packages.
Each print can be custom rendered to cover any specific range of time and space from the gesture data. These - among other - formats are available:
||1 frame (1/30 sec)
||Computer image file
|Computer movie file
It also makes sense to purchase several prints from the same series. There are progressive discounts on this kind of purchase.
For some series, each print will be unique, and the artist will register each span of time and space with the original purchaser's name. Each print is signed and authenticated by the artist. A copy of the corresponding DVD is included with the print(s).
Each DVD has the animation, selected low-resolution stills and screen background images, and an explanatory video on how the art is created.
The music is also created to go in synch with the video.
