A rendition of St Kilda’s Road, Stoke Newington, home for the first nine years
This version of the video has a track using a recording of a gong, manipulated and overlaid with a metronome soundtrack.
This is a version of blog 17 but with a Barbara Streisand soundtrack.
This is a tribute to the recently created Illuminated River project which is relighting twelve of London’s bridges. At the moment, although it has a small audience with so many people staying away from the centre of London, the newly-lit bridges have no traffic on them and a completely still, traffic-free river to illuminate each evening. This is made in iMovie using the audacity software to generate the soundtrack.
Here the previously-made video now has a home made soundtrack.
I have put together two versions of the same video. The first uses a classic Johnny Cash song I walk the line, the second uses a soundtrack of World War II bombing and gun fire. The videos bring together a number of elements, video of water; stills photography of the London Wall; and an item at the heart of this project; a compilation of Strava app maps which were generated each time I went running or walking along the route of the wall.
In addition to this, I have included some videos which were made using the same stop motion technique but making use of traditionally-made silk screen prints, in each case using a single photograph rendered in a variety of ways.
The challenge is to choose an approach to the physical printmaking that is appropriate to this project. Here are three examples using material generated last year.
This image of Centrepoint remains unchanged apart from the colours.
In this one, the image of Great Arthur House is not only printed in a number of colours but there are a range of overlays and different ways in which the image is positioned on the page.
This mixes versions of the same image with overlays of different sizes and densities, words and some video.
I have been using display.land. This has been interesting to learn and my experiments to date have led to some weird objects. There is a particular issue with working out the right light levels and types of surface required to make this work. It is also interesting to see how to create a simple, complete image.
This development of the previous video makes use of 3D graphic app display.land which offers the potential of a 360 degree view of a site. In this case, the focus is on a single block of stone moving across the landscape. The soundtrack has been created using audacity.
