This work was a ReDoIt project and I did mine on Paul Chans Drawings and Lights. The work showed chaos and political events that go on in everyday life. My work was about family chaos and arguments that many see throughout their life. People grow and grow old with someone else. They then have another someone and that is when a family is created, but then families break apart and people die off as seen in my production.

This project was a recreation of an original project from Sadie Benning called Living Inside. This connected with me tremendously because of the pressures of life that I go through everyday are the same that this artist also goes through. it is hard being apart of the lgbtq and dealing with these everyday stigmas. When recreating it took a lot of time to get the perfect lighting and angles. The editing process took forever to do but, I enjoyed doing the editing process making it seem like a vhs tape as well.

For this ReDoIt project, I was required to shoot my own still videos which I had not done before, and then put them all in the same frame, side by side. We are to choose an artist who shows something intriguing to us, pick a video, and then attempt to recreate it either exactly or with some variations. The variations thatI decided to display was to shoot in color instead of black and white. I also chose the word chicken which is something I love to eat instead of a word that I do not like, like what the original artist had chosen.

For this project, we were tasked with recreating the work of a video artist. I chose to recreate the work of Jacco Olivier in his video animation titled “Peace Starts With Me.” This work excited me because I was able to learn how to work with animating still images in Adobe Premiere. While my video is not exactly similar to Olivier’s, I feel that I captured the main ideas and concept of the piece. This is my first video art piece.

This is my first time making video art. This piece is a recreation of Doug Aitken’s famous piece from 1999 called “electric earth”. The original work was about showing a young man in a big city who is seemingly overwhelmed both emotionally and physically by his everyday life.Throughout the video he is dancing, which is really him mimicking the motions of the events he sees in the big city everyday. The video is about the preoccupation and alienation of contemporary society. This is my recreation of Doug Aitkens image.
