5.Site responsive selfies

Updated: Oct 14, 2019


At this point I was thinking to make a piece that was site responsive, in particular to the Live Theatre environs. The idea of using a variety of different spaces within one-piece of performance like a promenade performance with the audience following. This quickly evolved into a thought process of the audience being static and I video myself around the building and the audience watch a projection of this. I would eventually enter the theatre space and complete my performance. I tried this out wandering around the University Squires building, stairwells, corridors and toilets with a selfie stick while singing, talking or just making noises. If only I'd learnt how the on/off button operated-there's a lot of spy-on-the-wall style footage, when I have no idea the camera is on. Probably more interesting viewing than the intended video work.
