I am playing with the idea of my alternative statement ‘I walk’ being an audio piece, which I have uploaded here.
Following the suggestion from LCN mentor Levin Haegele I have been looking into foley effects. I want to bring the physicality of the discarded materials I work with into my audio and video pieces.
The crackling sound is the recording of a blue plastic bag being gently rustled. Plastic bags are often used by Foley artists to recreate the sound of a crackling fire.
I am experimenting with the tension between the reality of the rustling bag and the illusion of a fire.
I am also videoing and photographing trees in urban spaces through the filter of plastic bags, which may become a backdrop to ‘I walk’.
