October 2007

Revolve Around Me is a product of a recent reversion to my film and video beginnings, and a fusion between two of my passions: motion art and music-sound production. As a montage of various forms of natural and artificial repetition, this piece presents us with everyday occurrences that are usually ignored or unappreciated, from leaves waving to the rhythmic breeze, to the very steps we take when we walk. Another aspect that is investigated is the notion of life and death, or time in general. It is strange that we perceive time speeding up when we get older through our lives. The clock is not just a mechanical apparatus that keep us scheduled; it is a countdown to our deaths.

Although not technically musical, sound is an important role in the piece and finally became the first time I have devoted equal time in production to both audio and visual. Miss-matching audio and visual is explored including clock tics for footsteps and blinks, and television static for obscurity and confusion.

With the intention of creating a feel of eeriness, I’ve decided to capture the motion with a digital still camera. With the relatively low frame-rate of the camera, it accentuated the raw and jittery feel of the piece – whereas using a traditional video camera would make it smooth and soft, and perhaps even benign. A color wash-out and authentic "high ISO" camera noise further enhanced the distraught feel. The final installation was projected onto a canvas panel which not only introduced textures to accompany the image noise but added a slight warmth and sophistication to balance the already cold and disturbing piece.

This piece was also presented in high definition at both 720p and 1080p

Thanks to everyone who helped out! It has been a pleasure working with you all!
