Spectacle Artefact – Piece, Analysis, Evaluation & Reflection
After many complications and time clashes i have now produced my Spectacle artefact.
I based this around the idea of suicide and the private yet spectacular nature of such an event. I was originally going to use a model with which i would place within the location but after running the idea through my head constantly, i then decided to not use a model whatsoever. I felt that this would add an air of mystery to the pictures and get the viewer guessing as to who the person is-just going by the location and any of the signifable props that i placed within the frame. ‘The Power of suggestion’ is how i would best describe my pictures.
I was originally going to use a track by Mt Eden called ‘Sierra Leone’, that i thought would fit the piece perfectly but whilst editing i decided to use a track by a choir group called Scale and their cover of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’. I felt the lyrics and feel of tone of the track fitted better with the visuals.
Ater editing my piece together i definately noticed what shots i could improve upon and what other locations i could of used for my piece.
As a first piece or draft for the theme i feel that i put the theme across in a different way to what perhaps most other people think for spectacle. I wanted to produce a piece that would have an element of uneasyness and leaving the viewer guessing to who the subject – invisible within the picture; is and the reasoning behind it all.
In my first initial description for this. It is a private spectacle. Not in the way of drawing a crowd or causing disruption, but in the sense of inflicting a scenario onto yourself and the re-percussions of emotion and grief which it embeds into both family and friends.
