-Social media – Why do I want people to interact with it? – the motive
*To build a portfolio of different reactions *How comfortable are different people with opening up with these disturbed thoughts? – *How far can I push the boundaries of consent? – When am I becoming too invasive? – Consider the fact you have to make sure you aren’t breaking any personal elements to the point of getting into a lot of trouble! *Comparing how different people interact with my work – element of trust, would I get as much of honest reaction if they knew I recording but then how far can push that? *Understanding how other peoples minds work in comparison to mine – is everyone as disturbed as me really?
-Why use an old T.V. to display my work? –
*Seems to resonate with me more, plays on the eerie, disturbed feelings of my sleep paralysis. Feels like I’m stuck in this certain time and place more so and can’t get out of it, I feel a new TV would lose the emphasis of creepy dreamlike world. The multiple wires play on the domestic touch, the grainy, fuzziness of an old box TV gives an effect a new TV wouldn’t – yes you can add these things in the video but when this feeling also comes from the actual TV, i feel like I’m in this illusion world fully, you’re taken to that place on such a more personal level. This could be taken down to personal preference but itsn’t it how it makes me feel, what’s the most important part? If it doesn’t give me the sensation I get from my own health issues, the point of why I’m making the work feels trapped and a bit lost. I also think the sound becomes effected in a different way where it forces the viewer to get closer and it’s things like this I wouldn’t want to be lost, audience interaction is a key part to the success of my work. You need to be able to take the whole video in, what’s the point if you don’t feel engaged enough?
