A mess of unorganised thoughts for my visual artefact:
Visual Artefact – Block 1
What’s this video all about?
Images in the video footage
My visual artefact attempts to capture my relationship with technology – digital, or not.
(Wo)man + machine
In my video, I’m trying to portray things in contrast:
- Light and dark;
- Machine technology (coffee grinder) with digital technology (laptop, etc.) and skates (a non-digital technology);
- Piano: the simple and monotonous piano melody against the wild freestyle piano experimental excerpts
- Sound Effects: Digital sound clips (computerised, mech-tech robotic sounds, typing, coffee grinder, power cord, old radio, etc.) against sound clips of dishes, coffee beans, people, breathing and heartbeats; and…
Mixing everyday life – studying, working, making coffee with the expansive land of the digital – of online distance education –
As the video draws to a close, it speeds up; breathing quickens, heartbeat races, etc… As I often feel in my own life – that I’m out of breath!
