My project began as an attempt to question the link between our movements and our identities and understand if our engagement with mundane physical activities may be seen to contain relevance.

I have narrowed down the range of movements to focus on walking, an activity unique to humans, in an attempt to provide a framework to examine some of the issues around the lived body.

White sheet was an early piece that incorporated the use of  mundane movements; in it I tried hiding the body with the sheet to express the idea of the hidden, unconsidered body.

I used the format of slide share in order to create a very basic form of interaction with the piece. These are themes I would like to develop within the final piece.

The things that worked about this piece:

The camera set up.

Using a video clip to lift stills from.

Using an activity that hides/traps the body.

What would I develop further from this piece?

Save slide sequences as iMovies and incorporate sequences in to Korsakow to keep interactive element.

The things that didn’t work in this piece:

The imagery is too soft /hackneyed it doesn’t convey the idea strongly enough. It is too pleasing.

I wasn’t clear enough about viewing slide show quickly like a flick book to create the sense of movement rather than as a series of photos.

Haven‘t provided clear rationale for using slow motion.

What would change next time?

Imagery.

Might also try speeding up sequences.

Provide a clearer rationale for image speed.
