Filming Video Art

We had several days of filming as we were unable to get the correct shots first time round. I preferred taking several shots as this means that we could pick the best of the bunch when we come to editing. This did, however, take up too much time, and so we had to spread the […]

Planning Films

During our art lecture we saw several different types of video art including ones using green screen and others using 16mm film on a hand held camera. These were all intended to inspire us, however I soon found that it cemented the fact that I liked our ideas about the video that we were aiming […]

Lights. Camera. ACTION!

Back to Uni and we were thrown straight back into art with video art. Video art isn’t just a movie, it’s using a moving image to put across an idea such as you would in a painting. See Pipilotti Rist (and also Hold Up – Beyoncé) for a visual representation of this. In our groups, we needed to […]

I decided to carry on with the initial ideas of derelict houses and forests where nature and man are becoming one (well, more nature than anything). From here, I had no idea what to do.

The main concept behind my painting is the confusion of reality, and the interconnection between man and nature. With the increasing growth of the manmade structures, nature is often pushed to the side, and sometimes even forgotten about.
