Power Artefact – Analysis
My new improved Power artefact.
This video represents the power of pro-creation. The power of how life is created and then we all end up dead anyway. Hence the jelly mix pouring over the top of the sweets. The main influence i had for this was the ‘Meat Love’ video and also how many babies and kids i always see and how it seems like a virus with how vastly populated the world is becoming.
I decided to use a range of sweets to create this piece as i feel that it gives the message a bit of a nice and colourful twist to the theme. In my mind i feel that i have improved alot from my last artefact and starting from scratch was a good idea.
The feedback i received from the showing of my piece infront of my seminar group was that to elevate the video piece further it needed music & sound (which i did try and look for suitable audio) and also a few people didn’t see how the piece represented the theme of power (which i can see how they wouldn’t but it’s my interpretation so sod it).
I am going to further improve my piece by adding a simple childlike music onto the piece such as a xylphone. I feel it doesn’t need to have dramatic music as it doesn’t have any elements of drama within it anyway.
