Create an experimental video that fragments time, space, the source video and/or narrative. Create a video art piece through non-linear story-telling and experimental video techniques. Tell a story simultaneously, break it apart, make it strange. Consider the experience you want your viewers to have and play off of that emotion / memory / desire.
Create a fragmented / non-linear narration using a single or multiple video sources (i.e. files or recordings). This will be a single channel video and will be maximum of 2 minutes in length. You will communicate a non-linear narrative by fragmenting the video into a grid with minimum of 6 quadrants to use as your projection input/source.
Your project should include but is not limited to:
- Original source video – a fragmented video of a minimum 6 quadrants
- 1920×1080 res (should match projector specs)
- Maximum of 2 minutes
- Optional: Audio is not required but could enhance the work (must be original).
