Covid-19 had changed a lot of artist's practices', including my own. I cannot fully articulate this new practice. But due to social distancing I made the conscious decision to put on hold my film work. For reading on and a better understanding of my current work. Click here
COMBINING AND EXPLORING DIFFERENT SKILLS AND DEVELOPING THEM INTO MY WORKING ART.
MEDIA USED: UNITY TECH, 360° FILM, PERFORMANCE, VIRTUAL REALITY, PAINTING, PHOTOGRAPHY AND CHOREOGRAPHY.
During my current practice of 360° Film (2019 – ongoing) I found my themes to be purposely boring; in doing so I made works that were more interesting than I expected and had control over. Turning on the camera and capturing all angles, you’ll always find something to look at. In that sense it’s no different to sitting on the bus, things happen. My approach is similar to that of structural film; in attempting to create these ideologies the experience allows the audience into what I consider this meditative state; This state of mind comes from a person’s willingness to experience the work long enough where they finally are taken in by their new surroundings. When relating practice to meditation, research at times goes into an analysis of patience. “In Zen they say; if something is boring after two minutes, try it for four, if still boring, then eight. Then sixteen. Then thirty-two. Eventually one discovers that it is not boring at all”. John Cage//How to Do Nothing//Jenny Odell//Pg. 95
