having made a flicker book of kinetic drawings from a walk I am wondering if this will be more effective filmed on site. inspiration courtesy of Kraak and Smaak (see YouTube)
bm sent me a link to Rendezvous Projects a Community Interest Company based in Waltham Forest, which work on creative projects which engage with the social history of places. having agreed to attend the pv, I also looked up the work of Katherine green, I was drawn to this past project looking at William Morris designs in domestic settings called Antechamber: On the threshold of the domestic. Curated by Day + Gluckman, 20 June – 2 October 2013 the gallery was of interest and featured work by Emma Critchley. an ex Rca photography graduate who uses water film and sound to discuss issues surrounding the ocean and environmental concerns. in particular of note was her 'shift to working with moving image was a natural one, happening gradually as her work became more temporal; at the time focusing on the breath and duration. In You, she depicts the struggles of an internal battle, the densely silent underwater environment acting as a metaphor for an internal space – one in which both viewer and subject are caught in an eternal present moment. At The Still Point Of The Turning World is an investigation of the temporality of time, as well as the many moments and movements we never have the time to slow down, stop, observe and take in. It is not so much time interrupted as time regained.Minutes Passing Slowly presents new installation and film works by the London and Brighton based artists, both fascinated by the phenomenological, the investigation of experience. Whilst the references are universal the practices of both artists convey specific personal relationships with their environment.
lastly from today's searching was recent work by Cornelia partner using photogravure to produce images using glasses belonging to fox Talbot. something to try.....I like the qualities and again the language of ghosting, traces, emphemerality, loss and authorship.
