OUT OF THIS WORLD / GRACE QUIASON
A short experimental video collage, blending the use of Super 8, archival footage, and digital video. This work is the result of a process-driven approach to video art, with a focus on a visual experience. Produced over 4 weeks in June 2020, OUT OF THIS WORLD reflects the contemplative yet volatile energy felt during this time. With the confines placed on the production of this work, it was an opportunity to experiment, and manipulate pre-filmed footage, playing with space and effects to create interesting compositions. Emotional accessibility is encouraged by the disengagement with story, the constructed use of colour, and mood emitted. Through merging a range of sources with digital techniques, the imagery used is personal and, observed through an abstracted lens, it evokes a celestial nostalgia.
