This project focuses on the noise that technology and digital media creates in our lives. As students, we take notes on laptops in class. When we’re not in class, we are on our phones. When we’re not on phones, we’re listening to music. We are constantly exposing ourselves to this noise. Even when we are trying to “relax,” while listening to music, we are still exposing ourselves to noise. We never pull away from technology and this project is meant to point out the chaos in noise.

I did a piece by Doug Aikten called Autumn. Its about 3 different people who are living their everyday lives. This was for a commercial project that Doug did but he made it non-linear so that their storylines throughout the video go back and forth. The idea was to re-create a piece or put a twist on it and still have some connecting themes to the original piece. I kept similar elements such as the title, non-linear storyline, and I took different shots and angles that Doug did. I chose this project because, I liked the non-linear fashion storyline and the shots.

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. The original artists work can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOqDMAN-t0k

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.

This video is a video a recreation of Bruce Naumans Piece “Good Boy Bad Boy”. I decided to remake this video because of how it utilizes its audio quality, and also because I wanted to challenge my self in deterioration of film. This is one of my first video art pieces and was definitely the first time that I used audio recording with the footage. I believe I really hit the mark with my audio and my deterioration, It was a struggle to find two models to speak and sit that long in one position though I believe it made me a better director.

“This video is a rendition of the original “Don’t Forget to Breathe” by Doug Aitken. I chose this specific video to further explore my videography and techniques to achieve better efficiency in future works. Being my first video art piece, I captured these shots throughout the city of Lexington. The majority of these shots were still frame or slightly panning, some experiment with going in and out of focus. I edited the shots together on Adobe Premiere and used the audio from the original work. “

This is the second video I have made with Premiere Pro. I made a short installation film based on the work Staging Silence by Hans Op De Beeck. The project was to Recreate a video found by an artist on a list given. The music is similar and made differently to help encompass the chaotic racing thoughts of he mind.

This is a REDOIT project inspired by Anthony Goicolea’s FILMS4PEACE video. I interpreted the message from his video as animal cruelty even though his intention was to poke at the practice of destroying a piñata.I hope the animal noises in the background as the food is being consumed will make my audience wiggle uncomfortably in their seat just a little bit. After visiting Honduras and seeing the pride they have in raising their chickens for two years, seeing them grow from start to finish, and then killing them their selves with their own two hands brought about a completely different appreciation.

This was my first time creating video art. For our redo it project, I recreated the video by Adriane Little (https://vimeo.com/108072512). When filming, I went home and it ended up snowing so my video has more of a winter theme, but I tried to get the various shots and angles used in the original. I also wanted to recreate this piece because of the editing challenges. I haven’t done much editing, so it was a good experience trying to slow the video down and add my own voice.

This is my first time making video art and editing through Adobe Premiere. This video was for our class ReDoIt project. It shows the narrative of myself reading a novel which ends up telling the story of my own death. My video was inspired by a work of the same name by Keren Cytter ( https://vimeo.com/112764046 ). For the video, I filmed several different shots of the same scene, which was a new experience for me. Also, I learned how to overlap videos on Premiere.

This was my first time doing video art. In this class we were instructed to find work from a video artist that we wanted to reproduce. My piece was inspired by Francis Thompson’s N.Y.,N.Y.: A Day in New York (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztxuCv5-4D4). Since I am going to school in Lexington, KY, I decided to recreate this in downtown Lexington. To accomplish this, I walked around and shot whatever I found interesting through a prism. The main difference between mine and the original is my music choice. I feel as though Lexington has a calmer vibe, so I wanted to reflect that with a nice acoustic guitar.

This video is the final product of my “Soundtrack” series. I wanted to transform photos into the images that flowed through my head whenever I heard an inspiring song. In this video, Reset, I wanted to tell a Mother Nature story, and how we have completely inserted ourselves in her terrain and her fight to take it back.

For this piece I was inspired by Jan Svankmajer’s stop motion film from 1992, FOOD, and the saying “You are what you consume.”. Through this piece I was thinking of music and how, similarly to visual art, it creates an emotional response from its audience and can greatly affect an individual’s mood. All though we do not get to decide what products are produced for us, and in a sense don’t have control over what we want to consume, we have the ability to determine what we will consume based off of what is provided for us. Those choices can affect our health and who we are as a person.

For this project, I wrote my own version of a peom by George Ella Lyon titled “Where I’m From,” injecting it with my own memories and experiences. As I reflect back on my life growing up, the viewer sees images of nature from my rural hometown. I used various visual effects to achieve a nostalgic, dreamlike look.
