Visual Artefact planning…

Visual Artefact planning…

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);
  • Mood:
  • 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!

Just Pinned to #mscedc: The University of Southern California’s Shoah Foundation is teaming up with the university’s Institute for Creative Technologies to develop interactive holograms of Holocaust survivors. The technology is expected to be up and running within the next year, and will be installed in select museums around the world.
