After much consideration, I have refined my 5-minute video. This final version was developed further in response to suggestions, which were discussed during today’s meeting. It covers a holistic appraisal of the meaning and messages, I have attempted to communicate during my research, experimentation and visualisation. The running commentary is purposefully interrupted by the sounds of the cutting of the canvas and the rumbling of the washing machine. My creative intentions are to manufacture a powerful impact on the viewers and make them struggle, while interpreting, understanding and digesting the voice of the automated narrator in the background. The Masquerade clown like character at the end of the video, reports on his observations of this world as an alien and an outsider would, detached and unemotional. Therefore, his commentary seems more poignant and unbiased, drawing attention to our own flaws and weaknesses, when confronted with the unfamiliar. The computer generated voice reinforces the authenticity of the dialogue by removing the human element and dimension.
The paranoia of life continues!
