Time Present or Sur les balcons du ciel

So yesterday I showed a work in progress – emphasis on the in progress part because I found watching the video horrifying, so clumsy. Anyhow, it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a long time so it was good to just jump on in and do it. Now I need to find a way to do it again – better.

Time Present

Since it’s not zoomed in, the first section is me putting on my face with make-up and then smearing it with honey which sort of drips for the rest of the piece – the camera didn’t really resolve that texture. And as a disclaimer I think if I do it again I may use Heaven is of Honey, Einsturzende Neubauten or something else in place of the sort of emo radiohead song.

    i especially liked the drink pouring, glass dropping, and the way the last song came in perfectly aligned with your movements, did you have the sound person waiting for a cue? the motions for that movement, and pretty much all of the transitions really caught me.

    The phone call theme was particularly eerie, as i find myself becoming increasingly afraid of phone calls.

    i wish i were making something as vulnerable and beautiful as this at the moment, all my work right now is very safe. i bet dan good and i could come up with a nice replacement for the radiohead if you need one at some point, maybe with feldmeier on percussion when he gets out here, just in case you don’t find a suitable replacement elsewhere.

    thanks for sharing :)
