Artist Statement

This series is a play on the expectation vs reality trope. The first half of the video is abstracted and meant to show the expectation of a worst-case file destroying scenario when working with digital art. The other half of the video and the chosen stills then showcase the reality of what was produced. With how crazy the world has become; we have all begun to plan for the worst-case scenario. It’s anxiety-inducing and tiring just like the video shown. In most cases, the worst outcome doesn’t happen and in fact, something better than imagined occurs. Overall, the work was made in Maya and pieced together with previously shot video from my archive of footage. The music was stock from Adobe’s Library which was carefully combed through for the best mood. After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Audition were then used to make the final video seen. The stills were rendered directly with Arnold inside of Maya.  

Biography

Danielle Gross grew up always being creative with whatever she could get her hands on. Her influences were often the video games she played like Animal Crossing, Spro, and Need for Speed. Up until high school, Danielle was self-taught. In her freshman year, her artistic world was changed by her art teacher, Mrs. Stockton. From then on Danielle was determined to join the creative field and leave her mark. Spending roughly 6 years at NIU, she honed her craft and found her creative voice. Now at 24, she is ready to take on the world and showcase what she’s learned.
