The debut of the Flipcam!
I have to say---I am very happy that I purchased it last week. It is exceedingly simple to use and I'm quite satisfied with the quality.
Last weekend, I attended "Domestic Matters," a dance performance set against an art installation at the OSU Urban Arts Space. It was such a gorgeous experience--sensitively and articulately danced within and around extremely evocative art (Converse was inspired by one set of dances that took place on a floral-wallpapered climbing wall).
Mair Culbreth is responsible for the choreography, and Nicole Bauguss created the art pieces (both have kindly given me permission to post the video). Before the performance started, I wandered around the space, and shot some video of the different vignettes that stand around the gallery. All clips shown here come from that exhibit.
This week's video poem is "Sign-Off," a fairly recent one. I've also added some music that I played this time, as an experiment. What are your thoughts about video poems and sound? Do you prefer to hear the poem and watch it in video poems, or to have silence, or to have sound and/or music? Really curious to hear your opinions.
I do love playing with technology to make new things from my poems...it has been so much fun to create this video, layer by layer (image, then text, then transitions, then creating the music and recording all of its layers).
Hope you enjoy the video, and that all is well in your world.
