My process surrounded the idea of creating a set of weekly experiments that expressed my thoughts into a visual form through the use of video and editing. My responses were varied, and informed by weekly limitations. From creating a video utilizing only what was in my room to more open ended ideas such as creating a video that represents a feeling or emotion. These explorations pushed me to discover new techniques, new editing styles, as well as practicing the idea of working within strict guidelines. Through the process of creating these videos, one in particular stood out to me as something to expand on.
As To Not Forget Manifesto
Begining this process with a manifesto. “As To Not Forget” acts as a remdiner to let go, embrace change, and approach this process with an open mind.
Working With Restraint
My process began around that idea of creating a series of videos, which reconconsiles a past skill of film based media. The ideologie of these videos harkens back to the manifestos points on not being in control (letting process guide outcome) and “rules suggest” reminding me to follow the guidelines but not to let them confine me. Restrictions were set in place on things such as my location, props, recording device & type of footage.
Choose an object in my house and create a video using it in an atypical way
Using ‘found footage’, create a video that experiments with viewers perception
Confined to a single room, create a video with what’s inside
