Dislocations: Brandon Bell
Tools: canon optura100mc, tripod, adobe premiere+after effects,
dell inspiron8000/win2k, various sound programs
Music: "Jet" by Radian
Description:Shot almost entirely in Grand Central Station,
this piece is mostly a formal & contextual exploration
of the theme "dislocations". Overall, I wanted to
acheive a creepy feeling of disconnection using elements from
a place that was all about locating, re-locating, dis-locating.
A few random elements were shot with crazy kitchen lighting
and then superimposed over the GSC timeline in After Effects
to reinforce this idea of disconnection. The music played
a huge part in the final construction of the piece--it was
a perfect complement to the idea I was experimenting with,
so the video ended up reacting to the audio in an almost music-video
kind of way.
