When presenting a three dimensional object on a two dimensional screen it helps to make use of the fourth dimension: time. This was the foundation of the idea to film my sculptures and give people a better experience of them in an extended online exhibition. With the help of a cameraman I started this project end of January 21. I was exited by the results of playing with movement, light, and shadow. It was a new introduction to those forms also for me.
But then the real work started. First of all: I’m a complete greenhorn when it comes to the so called ‘social media’. To learn about the technology (mobile phone) and the processes of uploading and publishing videos on those platforms was taxing for me. For a long time I tried to avoid this! It is still learning by doing.
And of course those film clips needed music. That was actually a discovery: it came very easy to me, to write those short musical themes. To record them (another introduction to unfamiliar software) took a little more effort. And to put film and music together I had to get professional help again.
But it all worked out and now I’m uploading two short videos per week on four different platforms:
