AH: So why have you chosen to animate chromolithograph scans?
MH: Chromolithograph scans, when animated, have a distinct value characterized by the way they were originally printed in layers. When you zoom in to a chromolithograph scan and animate it, the result is both abstract and beautiful. As an art source, chromolithographs have more dimension and potential for visual entertainment. With the right approach, they can generate hours worth of continually changing zoom magnifications.
AH: Where can someone view Visual Ambrosia videos?
MH: Visual Ambrosia videos are currently available as a subscription streaming service from Roku. New subscribers receive free viewing of 3 videos for the first month, then an additional collection of eight new videos every three months. For anyone interested in learning more about these services, they are detailed on our website visualambrosia.com.
AH: How do you see an evolution of Visual Ambrosia’s ambient videos?
MH: With the growing demand for ambient video in corporate and residential markets, we expect to see Visual Ambrosia videos displayed in public spaces such as waiting areas, airports, hotel lobbies, hotel rooms, private hospital rooms, and even emergency rooms or the lobbies of business office towers. They provide passive entertainment for anyone waiting in or moving through a public space. We also expect to be in residential spaces as homeowners seek to enhance the quality of life in their interior environments. The videos are so peaceful and calming.
