Thinking about what and how I would like to exhibit..
I think I definitely want to present a video – I believe the immediacy and idea of the viewer staying to finish it and waiting for me to end what I have to say is quite endearing.
With a video, i believe that as the viewer watches they can become more invested in the piece and start to feel and experience the piece of art.
It reminds me of the concept behind the steps at a museum; the steps leading up to the entrance change their height and distance compared to normal steps so that you are consciously aware of the change and that you think about the fact you are about to enter this museum. I’d like to have this effect with my video- the viewer leaves their life and what they’re thinking about and focuses on mine and starts to feel what I am expressing.
Anyway, I would like to show my video large so that it can engulf the viewer.. I want them to be transferred into the shadows, movements and slight noises that are happening and not take in other things around them. I want this video to be the centre of attention. Equally, however, I have taken some stills from the videos and I would like to stretch them and mount them to exhibit. I’d also like to have poetry to go alongside. So many things I’d like.
