TDC1087: An ‘expanded moment’ video

For TDC1087, the video task required to ‘find a place with the potential for visual movement, place your video camera on or attach it to a stable object. Record at least 2 minutes without moving the camera and no sound’.

With no tripod available, I held the camera as still as possible pointing out of the window onto the village road below. Attracted by the faded white lines on the worn tarmac road, I knew that there would be movement provided by passing traffic – light enough to provide occasional change to the scene, but not too heavy as to be distracting. With cars parked at the side of the road, I also knew that the cars in each direction would pass over the lines, providing visible movement in both directions.

    🙂 I still want to do this one! Great idea. I have been (at last!) Taking the time to look at your work. There is something very deliberate and precise about your art. It is great to hear in your words the ‘behind the scenes’ thinking of how you chose to do a particular artefact. This video is a great example: ” I knew that there would be movement provided by passing traffic – light enough to provide occasional change to the scene, but not too heavy as to be distracting” Anyone wanting to reproduce your work could from you showing your workings. Lovely!

    Are you enjoying your experience? We have 2 runs of DS106 starting this week with other participants may be your students could connect with these new students on Twitter? Look for #youshow15 and #noir106 on TW.
