Business cards have arrived. Very happy with how they look.
This is the final version of the film I’ll be showing as my final piece. I had to change some of the brightness and contrast settings after testing them out in the studio, but I’m very happy with the result.
I’ve ordered some business cards. I kept everything simple, so it reflects the artwork I make.

I decided to create some gifs from my videos as I really like how unsettling the images look when taken out of context to the video, despite them just being gifs of my body. I think this shows the importance of seeing the video as a whole as although the clips in the video may seem disjointed and fragmented it is clear there is a narrative of the body within it.
After reading ‘Written on the Body’ I felt inclined to take some photographs of my body in a way which makes it feel like a part of a larger landscape. I tried to use portions of my body as a texture of a natural setting whilst keeping the high contrast black and white look present in my video work.
