Aim for  the simplicity of Jens Ullrich’s series of collages:

 

As well as John Stezaker’s ‘Nude and Landscape’ series:

Multiscreen / Single frame

multiscreentest-v1

 

I’ve been creating some works based on multiscreen / single frame video / imagery.

V1 idea is to create a multiscreen installation that allows the viewer to pause each screen individually. Sort of like a ‘create your own comic strip’ thing.

Related to this are some works I’ve started making –  ‘Redacted Comic Books‘ – painting over / obscuring elements within each single frame of comic book to alter the narrative. I’ll put some pics up of these soon.

So this video is a crude draft of how this thing could look – with each video playing on an individual monitor. In this example you watch all video until the end and the final frames invite you to invent your own narrative.

*this is a very rough draft of an idea*
