I found a gallery, finished the sound, but I am really behind with the animation. I need to really buckle down for the next two months in order to finish it. Possibly add some live footage to it. My main challenge at the moment is to make the visuals more compatible with the sound. I would like to create something that is accessible and beautiful, values rather snubbed by today’s art culture.
I have made the final sound edit. It was a rather hard as I had to make many difficult choices, such as how long I wanted the film to be, or whether I wanted the spectators to regard it the dialogues as a documentary or as part of an experimental piece of art. I opted for something in between. I tried to give the audience some choice in terms of what to listen. I will have two speakers at the exhibition. Some interviews will be played simultaneously. One voice will come out of the left and one out of the right speaker.
Drawing with pencil and prismacolour on the protective layer of cels.
After a break from my artistic practice I immerse myself once more in the calming qualities of drawing. But is drawing a pink gun calming?
Trying to squeeze some time for the project. I have to admit its not that easy at the moment. Still, I need to keep on going…Below are some samples of work. Pencil on the cel protection paper (!). There no need for more annotation at the moment.
the last part of the interviewing process took place over a month ago. Below are the lovely people who agreed to take part.
