Abstraction Show

leave a comment »

The test site show we did was instructive; the experience taught me a lot of things about working with other people, and at the same time, pushed me to develop my personal vision (heck, this is the first time to show work in a gallery setup). The pieces from across the MA’s were interesting, the variated takes on the theme invigorated my mind.

The video that I made for the show is a revised edit of the Study of Symmetry piece. I watched the other pieces of footage I had that I shot in the similar manner (15fps, shake-induced smearing) and constructed a dynamic line that builds the experience of progress, the structuring of power edifices and facades. I wanted the beginning to evoke the rise of the architecture like a phantasm of data, built and destroyed, built and destroyed, like history. I also put some parts of the piece in Motion, and experimented with layering; the artefact of the image (the pixels) begins to show at its edges when the footage floats above its own replica.

The piece does have sound, which I finished two weeks ago. I wanted the sound to construct a sense of space, a disembodied sense of a march into the city.
