Lucier in pictures

This is a picture of a room, different from the one you are in now......


video


I took a photograph, I then displayed this photograph on a screen and photographed the screen, I repeated this thirty times and put the results together into what you see above.

This is only a test however, my intention with this concept is to make a short film, of roughly thirty seconds to a minute in length, this will be a fairly self contained little clip but a lot of care will be taken with regards to the composition of sound and
mise-en-scène etc.

What the actual content will be still remains to be seen, but hopefully this will be found shortly...

The beginning

I am afraid to say that this is all going to get off to a bit of a slow start. BUT! Rest assured that I will pick up the pace. I don't think that I'll get up to writing on here everyday but we shall see.

At the moment I am finding this all very strange because I'm the only one who knows this exists and it feels a lot like I'm talking to myself, which i guess i am, but hopefully that will change for the better too.

I will try to make each post have at least one interesting little thing, so for now here is a photo of the end result of experiment i tried out, as a concept for a film next semester, a photographic/video interpretation of Alvin Lucier's 'I am sitting in a room'.

more soon...
