Movement
The world around us is constantly changing. Whether it is that new gadget that we just bought, which is now obsolete, or it is how age can influence our life; change is happening – the clock is moving forward.

The western culture has been described as a constantly moving society. This can be attributed to the impact of the media as it informs, updates or addresses the people instantly; there is movement, change is everywhere. Through films, television and the Internet one can see the underlying stories that reflect the culture that embodies our society. Everything in our society feeds into the story that ultimately defines us as a unique culture.

Movement, time, and process have always fascinated me, and the idea of societal or individual evolution has influenced my work greatly. In my artwork I strive to explore the concept of change through printed images, animations and interactive experiences that convey this idea. Digital media provides a unique level of accessibility to the public at large – this being a rather revolutionary means of art that is part of the constantly changing force we are exposed to every day.

About David Allen
I have been working with digital imagery since the late 1980’s and have loved every minute of it. Most of my early work was created through digital drawing and photo manipulation. Within the last 12 years I have also endeavored to take my work to new levels by incorporating 3D modeled imagery, animation and audio.

Take a look at my gallery here and then view my website (www.david-m-allen.net ) for full sized limited edition prints of my images.

Thank you,

DAViD
