Video: Mumblecore

Mumblecore is a subgenre of American independent film characterized by low budget production values and amateur actors, heavily focused on naturalistic dialogue. Filmmakers often assigned to this movement include Andrew BujalskiLynn SheltonMark DuplassJay DuplassAaron KatzJoe Swanberg and Ry Russo-Young. The term mumblegore has been used for films mixing mumblecore and horror gore.

Mumblecore is a genre of films that depend on naturalistic conversations in real places, focus on single characters in their twenties and thirties, and often depart from clear narrative structures. These films are often made on cheap budgets, sometimes in black and white, and are often produced with minimal soundtracks.

The genre can trace its roots back to the French new wave of the 1960’s, especially the films of Eric Rohmer, whose films focused on the romantic intrigues of characters and depicted lengthy conversations.

4D Project: Film

 

I will be using the finished book as my final piece as apposed to the video as I see the book to be the outcome of the project, whereas the video is a documentation of the act of erasing the text.


4D Project: Week 4

This week we looked at artists who work under the concept of ‘Navigation: Public and Private Spaces’. Here are my favourite pieces we looked at:

Vito Acconci’s “Trademarks” (1970). Whilst sitting in front of a camera Acconci performed a series of contorted poses and bit into his arms, legs and shoulders, resulting in impressions of his teeth left on his skin. He then covered these marks with printers ink and used them to stamp various surfaces, illustrating the bodies attack on itself while also criticizing the social institutions of art and the economy, by referring to the commercial practice of branding (marking) a product for the purpose of exchange (trade).Trademarks was not carried out in front of a live audience.’

Reading Position for Second Degree Burn 1970

When you have a body you don’t need a place. You become the art.

Sophie Calle ‘Sleepers’ 

Calle invited strangers to sleep with her in her bed for 8 hours, blurring the lines between public and private space.


4D Project: Brief

Take a familiar activity or journey and navigate it differently.
 
I said to respond to above task in any way: drawing, photo, documentation, video, text, object etc but try and abstract it:
i.e. try and avoid walking to uni backwards or brushing teeth with opposite hand.’
 
I have decided for this project I am going to be filming a video of myself with a book, and instead of reading through it I will be blacking it out with a marker pen. I shall be using a book on serial killers and blacking out all of the text, minus the names of the victims. This is in direct response to the way in which criminals are often pandered to by the media, whereas the victims are often forgotten. Examples:
