Ready for the Blaze

5 hours = 15 seconds of stop-motion from 3 camera positions;

. . . now off to burn it all!

Below are some images of the final set-up from the well-head to the plumes spewing out of it. The next phase is the burning. The stop-motion process and construction of the model and well-head have all been footage generators (have been recorded as ‘making-of’).

Finally architecture as DISTRACTION, could perhaps form a refreshed way of describing the ideas encompassing all my apparatuses  – of screen, footage, time, baroque special effects/phantasmagoria, or indeed the war –  came to mind after our last tutorial with Natasha and Manolis when referring to ‘Wag the Dog’. Since we discussed how the detailed construction or re-framing of information/footage could be seen in relation to actual events and their theatrical dramatisation as ‘distractions’ or indeed ‘confusers’ of reality – Perception thusly Managed!
