more body shots

November 3, 2017

I filmed another few clips of the body today. I want my videos to have a more personal, intimate feeling to them one created with the closeness of my form. I filmed my eye to began with panned the camera across my face in order to have a movement to the shot, all by performance shots are still and they feel a little stiff to me, so I'm trying to avoid this by opting for handheld work. Our eyes are really like pigs you know the other day I saw this.... 

 

 This shot looked so similar to my own!

 

I also wanted to film a singular drop of blood as it passes from the top of the leg to the bottom. With all my interest in the abject I've never attempted to capture a bodily fluid. I picked blood as it often signify pain or vulnerability, puberty or coming of age. Often drastic it's familiar to a woman. Periods interest me, as from a very young age we are taught that blood means someone is hurt, it's not often that you have to look at blood or be around it. But when a woman goes through puberty they have to become so accustomed to it, they have to look at it, touch it, be around it for an entire week every month. Coming to terms with bleeding without being hurt is a strange journey.
