Here is a video I edited together using the footage from last night. Going to carry on trying to create short videos over the coming weeks. Next step would be creating sound art to fit the footage.
Here is my homage to the video ‘Life’s a bath’ starring John Frusciante.
Colour has a drastic impact on the way we see the world. As an experiment I made two video, both containing the same footage, same music, same timecode and same layout. However, one of the videos is using colour in an atypical pop art style, whilst the other is in varying degrees of black and white. Although the imagery can be seen as violent due to the knife, the colour dulls down the impact. The idea for this experiment came from looking at two versions of Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe prints.
The mood of the prints becomes much bleaker and darker once the colour has been removed.
Here is a youtube playlist of all the videos I used as footage/audio/inspiration in my art work.
Accidentally stumbled upon this video whilst youtube video hopping. Edie Sedgwick is my favourite ‘celebrity’ (if you can even call it that) who ever existed. This video is really beautiful and dainty but rough and disturbing. I would like to try something similar in future.
