Brief: Create a series of 6 images that show your different selves
Main aim: In the words of Carlo Rovelli when he describes reality, perhaps I am also a “restless swarming of things; a continuous coming to light and disappearance of ephemeral entities”. (2014)
Sometimes I imagine myself dead. I picture my dead feet, my dead body, my dead face. If I live to be an old woman, the atoms which formed the baby I was at birth will have been almost entirely replaced by the time I die.
(Interesting for me to re-read this plan for UVC – the things I say about language and categories is useful, and good to see the ideas I have been having in S&O are a continuation and extension of those ideas)
Voice > speech > meaning …?
A short experiment – short video clip of 5 ducks, two adults and 3 children (a little like the social ‘ideal’ of what/how my family might be but isn’t)
Referring to the Rovelli quote I wanted to remove the reality filter (see my reflection on filters) we are used to seeing
I have slowed down speech and used technology to change the sound of speech, and the nature in which that speech takes place….
Added later – After posting this I started playing around with adding fragments of text like I did in the earlier experiement on this page. Looking back at that slideshow now, I think it lacks definition, perhaps because of the randomness and I also want to talk about the various renderings I tried out, and our pre-conceptions in photography vs. video but I will so in a a different post.
