Yesterday brought success. The scrolling issue has been resolved (thanks James) but has now led to a reappraisal of the opening images of the work. Two steps forward and one step back, but progress is being made. I recorded another audio trial as well which has been insightful in terms of how getting images and audio to tie together well – its going to take some time. I need to start resolving the edit and making final decisions, but I keep adding bits and pieces and finding more images to include…maybe I need to remember less is more. Time is ticking away.
Back at Norfolk Record office yesterday. I haven’t been there since last year and it was really good to see familiar faces. Captured some images of Land Tax records – the image of this beautiful marbled book cover was an early example, too early for my purposes unfortunately. As much as I love the colour I can’t include it as it would effect the integrity of the piece. Nice image though.
