PUBLIC ART  COLLEGE MURALS

Brooklyn College, "Cinematic Escape of Sight and Sound" Dec 2022

Film Dept, 2nd Floor West End Building, Brooklyn College, Brooklyn.  Acrylic, approx 200 sq ft. Lead Artist / Instructor: Julia Cocuzza. #bklyncollegemuralart

About the design: Design was created over the Fall 2022 semester in collaboration with 13 students enrolled in ARTD 4450. Based on community-driven research and engagement, the design is about the layers and life cycle of film production, from development through distribution, with an emphasis on the core elements of sight, sound, and time.  The focal point features three figures representing three major elements of film making: the camera (visual, sense of sight), sound/boom (auditory, sense of hearing), and editing (manipulation of time/space). Spilling from these figures in all directions are the many other important roles and processes behind film making, including story boarding, writing, acting, costume design, light design, and post-production CGI. Composition also emphasizes the many seen-and-unseen geometric planes and angles in the experience of film production. In contrast to the multiple red walls throughout the room, the color pallet is mostly cool with blues, greens, and yellows. Community partners included BC Art Dept, Film Dept, Office of Diversity & Equity, Office of Finance, and Office of the President.
