Original painting by Johannes Vermeer

Recreate a Masterpiece

Using the time-based medium of video, students must recreate the lighting of a master painting from the canon of art history. Where is the source of light and how is it motivated? Did something happen right before this moment that was captured in paint and light, something that led up to it? Creative solutions to these questions incorporate movement to achieve the emotional quality of the original.
