Charcoal water reflection

February 12, 2018

 I was curious what it would be like to record a dark reflection, due to observing puddles on the pavement at night and my earlier work with projecting on a mixture of charcoal powder and water. Completely unsure if I would be able to actually record my reflection without the camera in shot, I basically splashed the black liquid on the floor allowing it to form into puddles just as I'd witnessed on the pavement. I was simply interested in recording an image in a different way, attempting to alter the texture of the film. Dawning my pig costume I simply watched and observed how the image was distorted in the puddle. I do enjoy this blurring that takes place and the qualities of the colours in the reflection sort of have high contrast look to them. I have a mind to crop the clips in post so we are less aware of the fact that it is a puddle, instead just having the viewer assume its a strange effect. Although at the time I had no idea what I was doing when staring into that puddle, didn't really know what to do with my body, I can see this as an alternative to a performance what if the audiance could somehow only see the reflection but not the actual performance???
