Last week, I agreed with Miranda’s comment on the mirrored receipt experiments being the most successful. I found Ceal Floyer’s works interesting with the way she makes everyday objects appear differently but I also found her work quite cold and uninviting.
On Monday I was confused how to bring my work together. In my tutorial, Miranda and I discussed the best place to end the project would be in nature, as I said the reason I was feeling more excited by my other modules is that they require me to go outside…
– Stress on money in this project, to take the receipts outside I connect money and land, and land is money
– Dusk or dawn? At dawn the projection would disappear
– Contrast between the documented receipts which represent order, systems, logging, the concrete, with the ephemerality of say running water.
– To look at Joseph Kosuth
– I brought up the way I looked at receipts as a way of voting, our choices and power is restricted.
– In the end the finished receipts would have been filmed, projected, filmed and projected again.
On Tuesday I made four new receipts out of real ones, using text that stood out to me.
To create the films I used a clothes horse and attached the printed out text in a loop and pulled the paper upwards to make the receipts roll like film credits.
Projection in landscape
On Thursday I struggled to get in location fast enough before sunrise. I decided to walk to Penparcau because there is a lack of people, it is where I keep returning to this semester for my painting and photography projects.
The last steps this weekend –
– photograph the clothes horse
– Return to Penparcau to project at night?
– Project the videos onto a wall and photograph for the proposal
