I’ve started to come closer to what my final idea could be for this project. i’m very interested in doing something about the human body. I wanted to do some experiments of things i am interested in such as the human body, human emotions and how we use our facial expressions and body language to communicate with one.
These are just some of the experiments i did .
For this video, i gathered a few viral videos on the internet for my friend to watch. These videos were a variety of gender from sad videos to scary, happy to disturbing. While my friend watched these his face expression varied from following to smiling, laughing and surprised. when shooting i did very close angles to replicate how us humans look at each other
I then showed these experiment in class and got some critical feedback. My tutor liked my videos but felt there was room for improvement. I agree as i don’t feel its my strongest work. I mentioned another idea i had briefly thought about and this idea was encouraged as my tutor found it more different and ‘outside the box.
As mentioned in my last blog, I want to conduct an interview while using the same technique john smith did with his ‘girl chewing gum project’ . i want to ask questions to a range of people like an interview and have the answers edited so the questions i ask have a different answer to what that person said. This is creating a false sense of trust, where the viewer may feel confused.
This is something i am deeply interested in and will definitely do some more investigation to artists who have done similar artwork.
