I’ve decided to create a version of the storyboard film in blue in order to experiment with using a colour tint on my work. I’m putting it on DVD so I can see what image will look like on the tv set.

Artists who have chosen to show their film work as a video installtion.
I’ve been looking in to the way in which my art will be displayed now that I’ve found the perfect television. Some artists who have displayed video with televisions are as follows:
Live-Taped Video Corridor features two stacked television monitors at its far end, both linked to a camera mounted at the corridor’s entrance: the top monitor plays live feed from the camera, while the bottom monitor plays pretaped footage of the empty passageway from the identical angle. Walking down the corridor, one views oneself from behind in the top monitor, diminishing in size as one gets closer to it. The camera’s wide-angle lens heightens one’s disorientation by making the rate of one’s movement appear somewhat sped up. Meanwhile, the participant is entirely, and uncannily, absent from the lower monitor. The overall result is an unsettling self-conscious experience of doubling and displacement.
“In Recall I’m using turpentine as a device to activate the memory, past experiences when the smell occurred. The material is actually inhaled- I stuffed cotton saturated with turpentine into my nose, and like a drug, it induced an alteration of a past region in which the smell prevailed, and I verbalize in a kind of rambling stream of consciousness monologue.”
This is an idea of what the video will look like on the tv. There are areas where I’d still like to edit the video (there is a clip mid-way through I’d like to speed up slightly) as well as changing up the contrast on certain clips in order to make it look most effective on the TV. The TV will also be shown on a pedestal in the exhibition in order to have it closer to eye level.
After testing the images I’m going to film the video so I’m able to have it playing whilst I edit it in order for it to show as clear as possible on the tv.
Here is the video I created alongside the storyboard. This is the video I’ll be using to test out the way the final video will look on the tv so I can see if things such as lighting or contrast need changing.
