Women in Art is a video made by Philip Scott Johnson. It collects 90 different portraits of Women painted by artists over a period of 500 years ! Philip Scott Johnson seems to like the morphing effects and It is really amazing to see how women were represented through Art. The representation of women is an element which has certainly been studied but which deserved a visualization. Now this is done.I really like the morphing effect, it is hypnotizing and I must admit it works very well here.
Music: Bach’s Sarabande from Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007 performed by Yo-Yo Ma.
