Saw these still lives in the book ‘Constructed Realities’. I’ve been needing away to start my video piece, and I think i’ve found it.
The border of these images resemble that of an opera stage. Im considering the usage of this effect to open my film. Id like to start it out with a Red curtain opening, a spot light fills the ‘stage’ and you see the original duct tape mask sitting upon a plinth. The video will now zoom in towards it and pan around to the small door on its head.
The door opens and the camera follows inside, where upon another light fills a ‘stage’. This time a fully duct tape suit awaits seated in the centre of the room. The figure starts to move, twitching and slowly rising from the chair.
This is where the Animation kicks in, showing the vase becoming clad in duct tape and then eventually spilling out everyday objects. The video will start to jump between each position (the duct tape suit and the animation) and then stop. The vase will fall from the plinth it was on and begin to free fall in slow-motion; the character in the duct tape suit will begin to mimic the free falling vase, twitching and moving with rhythmic force.
Once it gets to the point of breaking it stops, freezes in time. Cuts back to the character who has also stopped moving.
Then the vase begins to ascend and spill out more and more objects, creating an endless cycle of OCD.
