Only 45days to go until opening night!! if only we had that long to complete our work, haven't posted on my blog for a while, iv been busy filming, recording and picking up pearls off the floor!!
My work seem to have changed quite a bit recently, (for the best, I hope) My main theme of my work know seems to be based around personal identity and the tensions created!
For my Graduate Exhibition, My piece will consist of a sculptural installation representing a snap shot of a domestic environment, a film will be showing on a monitor close by, this will be of anxious actions i.e. hands twiddling a pearl necklace, which builds up to reach a climax.
When this climax is reached, there is a release of sudden sound and the film shows the pearl necklace snapping and the beads falling to the floor. The viewer is unaware of the nature of the struggle and what caused the necklace to snap, this may create feelings of confusion and trepidation. I want the combination of sudden sound, film and installation to send the viewer into a state of shock.
The film will show close up views of a person’s hands nervously and anxiously fiddling with a pearl necklace, a build up of tensions and emotions are created until they finally become released when the pearl necklace snaps the film then jumps from the hands to the pearl beads falling to the floor. The film has no sound up until this point, where the viewer is presented with a loud burst of the noise of the pearls hitting the floor.
Here are some stills from a test film i have recently done..
