Work to date for group discussion of proposal

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.

Aims:

  • 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.
