Sound Box

As part of my Project Proposal is to experiment more with audio I have created a sound box to use when recording minute sounds. Here’s what I did: – Firstly I purchased foam board, egg trays to create the sound boards. I also purchased a rubber matting that I could use for the base of the sound box. Perfect opportunity for some egg tray photographs – of course. Having cut the foam board down to size I then attached the egg trays to the foam board using hot glue to create the sound boards. This was followed by removing the…

What Lies Beneath

Using the video footage created at Thruscross, Haweswater, Derwent and Tryweryn I created a video piece with the intention of creating a sense of remembrance. Using layering and light techniques I brought together archive footage with material I had shot on my earlier site visits. My intention was to create a feeling of nostalgia and the sense of peace that can be found at these reservoirs nowadays. I decided to produce two video’s one in colour and one in monochrome so that I could decide later which was my preference. Below are stills from the colour video: Below are stills…

Project Proposal – Draft 2

Working Title Investigate the analogies found in the landscape that can reflect issues of collective and personal memory displacement and loss reflected in the surrounding environment. Is the influence of man in the landscape an analogy for the social issue of displacement and loss on a personal level? Do the effects of dereliction and abandonment in the landscape reflect the inner experience where memories become lost or faded over time? Do changes in the landscape provide an analogy for changes in memory? Do things such as location smell, sound, objects help us to remember? Aims Research theories that relate to…

Research – Shona Illingworth

This post forms part of my initial research for my project proposal. Lesions in the Landscape is a video installation with an immersive sound piece. I became inspired by this piece through my own struggles with memory after a period of illness. Claire, struggling with amnesia and memory loss through encephalitis causing a lesion in her brain resulting in the inability to remember the past, make new long term memories and remember faces. “The past existing as a space you can’t enter or feel; the future a space you can’t imagine.”(Claire, 2013) http://digicult.it/news/lesions-in-the-landscape-an-interview-with-shona-illingworth/ Illingworth collaborated with Claire over a long…

Research – Rachel Whiteread

This post forms part of my initial research for my project proposal. Rachel Whiteread came to my attention mainly for the piece House (1993) where she had cast the interior of a house in concrete prior to it being demolished. This spoke very much of memory and history of the many people who had lived and visited the house when it was alive. It appears to me very much like a sarcophagus a tomb filled with memories and lifetimes that will only be remembered through this installation. The piece Ghost (1990) where Whiteread sculpted the inside of a bedsit in…
