Altera’s Dynamic Painting

Marcela Carvalho, Daniel Carvalho and José Santos are Altera art collective. Dance and music are forms of art related to movement; painting, on the other hand, can only suggest it. Nearly 100 years ago, this limitation was overcome by the use of new technologies, when German abstract film pioneers created “choreographies” from shapes, lines, and colors – not by chance related to modernist works by Kandinsky, Braque, and Klee. Altera creates Dynamic Paintings in digital media, developing the use of simple lines and shapes to delimit spaces, which are filled with complex multi-layered natural dynamics. The movement is driven by contemporary instrumental music, created by the group specifically for each work. Their latest project, The

, is a collection of audiovisual works each one bringing focus to different

aspects of water dynamics. Our intention is to immerse the viewer in the abstract images, creating a unique sensorial experience

Lines of Reflection

is an abstract interpretation of one of nature’s most beautiful dynamic: the reflection over water. In this artwork we create a secondary layer of weaving lines and grids overlaying the intricate patterns and shapes, created by this natural process. Live footage of water reflection is shown through the multilayers of lines driven by the contemporary arrangement of Italian Renaissance composer Nicola Matteis.

Refluir

is about water motion comprising three visual levels: the reflection (images from objects that are over the water), the refraction (from objects on the river bed) and the water surface (altered by the river bottom conformation). The dense multilayered imagery reveals the richness of shapes and colors created by natural processes. To watch the video
