At the end of the first day, I have been experimenting with animated GIFs and video layering that plays on the equation-like text "public </> theft </> private". I felt it would be fitting to appropriate part of an online website work by my university tutor, seeing as he believed my work on this theme to be "outdated". The appropriated work explores a similar binary divide; though this time the one between rich and poor, and I feel enters into a relevant dialogue with the "equation". Rich/poor could also measure wealth of information compared to simply the financial, dependant on which side of the monopolisation divide they fall on. I felt as though I should have something visual to show for the first day that will lead on to further work!
James: I enjoyed seeing/reading your work today, sort of an immediate medium to use, direct interaction with the body. I feel I also need to "get out of my head", I find I get too caught up in concepts and meanings, I could certainly learn something from this exercise!
