Autolimerence

Our Digital Self is separated from the experience of ‘being human’ partly by existing outside the material/real world. Digital You meets up with others online in rooms, boards, sites, platforms – all physical descriptions of non-physical spaces. Post-pandemic, our meetings are on Zoom where even the CEO’s Digital Self...

Chroma key

I’ve used my colour-only stop motion videos to play around with a few things. Just mixing them together is pretty… … but kind of reminds me of the 90s Pearl & Dean intro for some reason… I did a lot of playing around with chroma keying out colours on...

Experiments with light

I’ve been continuing to experiment with stop motion. I’ve done several short tests with just colour rather than video....

Twister

Stop motion. 4 second shutter. One layer. Unstable base for both the laptop and the camera. Trying out different shapes and techniques. Update: More layers…...

Double Filter Test

I’ve tried a couple different techniques with this video from TikTok. It is a stop motion animation of the video played on my laptops screen with each photo taken with a 4 second open shutter on my iPhone (using manual settings on the ProCam app). I then used pieces...

Bowie…

I remember the interview Jeremy Paxman did with David Bowie in 1999. I was deep into the web at the moment and was constantly trying to convince people that it was very definitely the start of a revolution and not just ‘the 1990s version of CB radio’… Partial transcriptions...

Filtered

“Is this disconnect from our bodies the way we should be living? This flesh now feels like it is just another thing I have to take care of, like a plant. I just live in my mind now, but I feel like I’m somehow incomplete, artificial, a kind of...

Lossy Compression

We are in this feedback loop, we condense our life into a trite tweet or a ‘pretty’ picture while constantly searching for ‘likes’ and ‘friends’ and ‘followers’. If we post about #Red and it gets more interaction than if we post about #Blue, we’ll end up posting more about...

Video Test

I pushed this too far… and earlier versions aren’t particularly good… Hmmmm. There are some nice stills, but other than that: Fail. I used a video which recorded a film projected onto a cinema screen. I put this video on my computer and made the video as small as...

Video Experiment

I had an idea for something last week and wanted to try it. This is my first go and it hasn’t quite worked in the way I was expecting, but there are some interesting things in it that I can use. It’s a time lapse of clip from the...

And we’re off…

We had our first meeting yesterday and I met a few interesting people. Only ‘a few’ because I only got a chance to briefly talk to a few one on one. I’m sure we will have plenty more opportunities to get to know everyone. I need to do a...
