This post outlines my project proposal and looks back at some of work I have made since September.
The most recent is a video piece made for projection in combination with ‘curtains’ of drawings on cling-film.
I’ve not done this yet though. I also need to reflect on this piece, specifically from a digital cultural perspective.
It could have ben made without digital technology but possibly is different as a digital piece. My reflections will be posted in full after the discussion….well not straight after!
Work shown was made most recent first.
My key question is : how can digital technology contribute to the re-animation of action or event residue to demonstrate its co-existence with the present?
I am interested in the way we document and archive past events, the overlay of memory of past and present, and the fluid space in between.
To combine the use of digital technology with physical action, objects and images (remains of place, time and events) to produce work that evokes emotional affect in a viewer.
To use digital technology and traditional art practice to make manifest concepts such as impermanence, change, continuation and layered co-existence, rather than static archive.
