Spin-off Idea: Screen installation as Gesture
After part 2 of my assignment development work I sketched down some further ideas of gesture and ambiguity – informed by one of my previous works (Fig. 1).
.. this led to an installation of two Rhenalon plates, crossing each other (Fig. 2)
… and eventually, I placed the transparent cross (Fig 2) in-front of my dark laptop screen, making several still images at different lights and merging them into a performative moving image:
Video: Ambiguous Screen Gesture (0:03 min)
This seemed a spin-off idea informing my parallel project on MRI and self. I modulated time- sequence and added a MRI machine sound: Ambiguous Screen Gesture MRI #3
With being intrigued by installation of transparent surfaces I had to try out one more projection.
Using a human scale perspex plate (180x50cm) and projecting my recorded light performance Hand-Catch-Screen-Performance, through it, at the right wall the images are displayed. My hand as an additional ‘life’ performance act distorting, interrupting the projection, adding more layers of reality and meaning to it.
=> With these two set-ups, I am wondering about scale, human size, got reminded once again about Jutta Koether’s body of work, and how the viewer, the audience can be involved, engaged in the narrative, the work itself.
