After editing the video of the foil performance, I have been rejigging and reworking the video, to attempt to create the most out of the image. My very first concern when first ever viewing the image was that it hardly looked like a figure, rather some sort of alien form. I had reconsidered and have been using the unfamiliarity as a sort of emotional blockade- that you can see that the form is living and breathing, but can tell nothing more about the character under it's crystalline shell. I had placed aluminium foil in an old frame, and projected the image straight onto it. It distorted the imagery more, but reinforced it's figure human like quality a lot more. Perhaps being placed in a frame conjures up the more traditional portrait paintings, which was my initial intention for doing so, but the foil at certain angles seemed to lose the image completely in an eye watering sheen, while being much clearer at other angles, but the sped up editing of the image makes it clear that the form is breathing and living. The texture of the burlap background is now completely lost, but I am willing to compromise with this in order for the subject to take charge, and intrigue. It lives in a transient state of existing/ not existing, being/becoming/became, mortal/immortal. I enjoy the metal properties, and it was clear that the heat from the performer's angle inside the body casing was growing discomfort and large amounts of heat, and this is not apparent in the video. This composition reinforces the idea of the performing bodies experience against what is experienced in the viewer, by becoming more or less present as the viewer moves and engages with the work.
