Watching is an offshoot of work I’ve been producing for the last four years. Based on images from both the Colour Circles and Colour Squares experiments which in themselves are based on the Homage to the Square works of Josef Albers.
In this short video I’ve taken photographs from Colour Squares and assembled them into a simple slide show with a black background and exported that slide show to video. I’ve then uploaded the video to an iPad and in a blackened room, played the video while watching it and holding very still. The process of me watching the video is re-recorded on my iPhone, or my Digital SLR.
I feel this has worked out well and it’s a strong enough base for a few future video works.
