This week Project 2(A) is due a in class presentation.
Using google docs and our Facebook group page as well as meetings we put together the presenation of all our individual research and ideas for our film including how we will work together as a group.
Chloe’s definition of lacuna “The blank/hollow space or background that reveals the substance. E.g. a black background or pause in a song – without which you wouldn’t appreciate the real focus”.
Karina – “Lacuna is comfortable- it is a space to breathe and understand what is going on within it or surrounding it. It is the transition that defines one scene to the next. It is what completes a puzzle”.
Haesun – “Lacuna for myself is an empty space, whether physical or psychological which provides an individual or others with a certain feeling, memory, sense or attachment”.
Myself – “I see lacuna as a space in time- an unfilled space to reflect and feel to correlate your thoughts and emotions in what you are experiencing”.
Haesun, Chloe , Karina and myself all had similar definitions of lacuna. Which then made it easier to come up with a hypotheis we were all happy with.
Through chaotic, tangled and unclear imagery, we’ll be overlapping content to stir stressed and strained moods/emotions. There one minute, gone the next, we plan to use light/light movement, projection and mirror distortions to form this chaos, muting and suppressing any meaning. However, we’ll transition into film that includes shadow, blank spaces and invisible space. This will bring about a new, clearer meaning. As the white noise is dulled, and blank or invisible space (which is often forgotten) is introduced, one is able to interpret a sharper meaning. The lack of closure in our story leaves the viewers with a subjective interpretation.
Our group vision is –
-Lacuna as a invisible space
-Space is usually not appreciated, we need to show how important space is to us. There are several interpretations; our project will put the audience into the spot of interpreting Lacuna in their own way.
-Cluttered space vs. Empty space
- How are we linking this to lacuna ?
Oxford dictionaries defines lacuna as “an unfilled space; a gap”. In this presentation you will see all our individual definitions of what lacuna means to us. Our concept and video production aims to explore the idea of lost and forgotten space that makes objects functional and aesthetically pleasing. Thus, this relates to the concept lacuna as we are exploring the physical unfilled space and gaps in everyday environments.
What is going to be Our approach to making this concept come alive?
Our group approach to this brief is to work together combining all our skills to form a unique and timeless video production. Using our techniques from research we will effectively convey the importance of lost and invisible space that creates function and aesthetic. Our style is a combination of textures, snippets, overlays and reflections. This reflects the overall concept of creating an abstract piece of moving images that links to lacuna as a form of invisible space.
