I filmed Clean my sheets (video here), which is a documentation of washing up liquid being dripped onto the sheets of steel. From my previous post, I wrote about the neat being in contradiction to the disorganised, but I noticed there was something else that was interesting.
I began the semester looking at site-specific work, and towards the end of it, I’ve went the opposite direction. One of the Models and methods of curatorial practice lectures was about the whitecube, and how that was a generic, non-specific space which separated the art and the outside world. I’ve noticed I deployed these strategies to frame my work, such as using a white backdrop instead of including the location into the frame.
There’s a conflict between the aesthetic of the film with the audio. The audio is connected to the location, whereas the aesthetic isn’t.
