Visual Project 3
My third visual project was a video documentation of the interactions between people and the space they share for the duration of a week. My original idea was working off of Marina Ambromovic's performance in which she sat at a table with the gallery-goers and stared vacantly at them. I started out with the idea of focusing on two specific people and documenting how their relationship progresses throughout the course of the week. During filming I decided there were much more interesting interactions going on all around me and changed my idea to document the various different people on the trip and how they live in this space that almost seems otherworldly in the moment. My finished project incorporates ideas talked about in the reading about space, providing an analysis on the way that these people feel at home amongst their peers in a new environment.
