My visual artefact on the theme of dystopia and technology ….
A bit of background:
To paraphrase Lennon, my visual artefact is what happens while you’re busy planning something else.
The original idea was to be neutral -something that would combine dystopic and utopian views and possibly blur the dichotomy of the opposite outlooks in the vein of the rhisome theory (which really resonates with me). A very initial attempt can be seen as my ‘Virtual Mediation 2‘. My visual artefact was to be a follow-up on this idea but instead of pictures it was to make use of videos.
However, after spending a day trying to work out the video editing software I gave up and hence the rather pessimistic clip. It still needs tweaking – I could spend hours if not days syncing the audio tracks, captions and two videos, something I’d love to do but can’t afford at the moment.
So, there you are - what can I say – grim as it is, enjoy it!
