This work began as a video piece, recording the work of performance artist Katrina Brown. I then created stills from the video that was shot and produced a single image that represent instances of the entire performance. We agreed not to share the video itself, but the stilled images take on a different form, perhaps a less personal one. I’ve applied this technique to other video work that I’ve produced but I remain most pleased with this particular one. Core to this work is an examination of film fragments – or the fragmentary nature of what we recall. When shooting with moving images and sound, we appear to capture everything, all that the camera is pointing at. But memory doesn’t work like that, memory appears to edit, to select and to create. I used a very systematic approach to this – taking fixed frames from the moving images I’d shot. Memory is of course far less ordered or structured. Below are some of my ideas taking this work forward.
