Mindblotch- Serge Goldwicht- Belgium

In 1921, Hermann Rorschach discovers the power of the inkblot as a therapeutic tool. Thereafter, the inkblot becomes a catalyst of expression, a door to our subconscious. Long before him, as early as 1500, Leonardo Da Vinci noted that random splatters of coulour had the power to open up the mind. Later in the 20th century, surrealists like Dali created inkblots to communicate with the subconscious and the hidden world of dreams.

In the 1970s, Pop Art and psychedelia give a new lease of life to coloured blobs through cinema and video. And finally, at the beginning of the 21st century, Serge Goldwicht invents ‘blotch painting’, a narrative blot made entirely by hand, without the use of any digital effects or algorithms. The blotch becomes more than just an image, and transforms into a narrative – a story that can be interpreted in infinite ways.

The creators

Serge Goldwicht is an artist and a director. He has a Master’s degree in Philosophy from the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). In 2014, he creates a device which allows him to film abstract paint blotches moving at the pace of human desire, without any special effects.

In 2015, he meets Pierre Lebecque, a sound designer and composer, who fuses the images with a musical score specifically created for their unique movements. Pierre has a degree in Social Science and family therapy from the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) and a Master’s degree in sociology with musicology.

  5. I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours today, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It¦s beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  6. 351426 499151Hi this is somewhat of off subject but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or in case you need to manually code with HTML. Im starting a weblog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any aid would be greatly appreciated! 263675
