IMPROVISATION 0001-DES

Live video improvisation to camera, created for Home for Waifs and Strays’ event, ‘¿Dónde Está Santa Claus?’ held at the Actress and Bishop, Birmingham on 10 December, 2013.

The live feed from GrandVJ was projected directly onto a wall and then refilmed for this presentation. As my camera only records approximately 10 minutes at a time I took six sequential videos and spliced them together in Blender with fresh audio. Apart from that there is no editing or further post-production.

With thanks to Kate Spence, Lee Chaos and Sarah Lipstate for inspiration.
