So now I have 2 minutes to answer the question “Where Am I?”. No easy feat.
I considered this to be something of a metaphysical question, where am I emotionally, where am i in my life, and where is the “I” that is me, am “I” partly in the art I create?
Well, I decided to take this back to the physical “I” and realised that I am in different places depending on when I’m asked. This also applied to the metaphysical I.
I decided that I am somewhere along a trajectory, between where I was, and where I thought I wanted to go, so I recorded whenever I was in transit. This also neatly fits with the idea that film is a series of points through time, I wanted the film itself to answer “where am I?” with the “I” being the film/artwork.
I found a soundtrack by a chance listen to dans ( sikir ) track “rework” which I felt sounded like the visuals I was creating.
Editing my visuals became fairly easy, I found I had bits of video which suited each part of the track, and cutting on the major sonic changes things seemed to just fall into place. there have been a few edits in order to hit certain cues.
I hope everything goes to plan today, train to london, tube to jojo in soho… fingers crossed
