So I set fire to my own field of oil wells Gulf-War-1.0 style. A few hours of footage including prepping and recording generated from an almost 5 minute burning.
Following our discussion on Friday I focused on using time and points of view/perception as means for generating footage and expanding a moment. In a test I carried out below I recorded the burning of a model oil well by setting up several devices to capture the moment (including iPad, iPhone, GoPro, SLR camera and a webcam recording myself and the other cameras recording the moment). Prior to that I recorded myself in the process of putting together the model oil well. The set up wasn’t limited to expanding the moment in time but also expanding it spatially with a simple mirror set up to create an infinite field of moments.
Below are some sample images from the test:
