Subject 3: Setting up the show

Setting up the degree show went surprisingly easy. I had some

initial worries about presenting my work, however I had an image in my head of how I wanted it to look. The three problems I worked most feverishly on were:

  1. What to use to display the television on?
  2. How to hide all the wires and make it look seamless?
  3. How to keep the sense of watching this in the same way I learnt about sexuality (a tv in my brothers room)?

I initially thought about using a plinth, however I thought it would take away from that home feel, and it wouldn’t help to hide any  wires. A tv stand proved too low and too wide. I decided on using a bookshelf, which was what my brothers tv was on. I could then place the DVD player and the extension cord in the shelves to hide all the wires. To keep the wires off the floor and to keep the space safe I used electric conduit.

i couldn’t be happier with how it looks. The height of the piece is perfect to look at. The reflective nature of the screen makes the viewer able to see themselves in the screen, which is what my work is about, representation of women in film. I love the way the floor looks so messy in comparison to the wall. All the attention is on the screen. I’m incredibly happy with how it has turned out.

Subject 3: Exhibition DVD

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.

Subject 3: Video gifs

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.
