Telescape – A FACTory of Surfaces

Working on the models for the scenes I’ve metioned yesterday.

Some points on yesterday:

  • - I particularly liked the idea that the FACTory is granting the Screen a body : The Telescape is the screen given a body by surface.
  • - The galleries (the Wallace Colelction and Saatchi exhibit I plan to frame within my telescape surfaces as an introdicution to the film)
  • - MORE footage MORE clips appearing for shorter times – exploit the viewers positon as the one making asscoiation but keeping it short enough – 5 secs max each clip – to pevrent each micro narrative from taking over (thanks Nathan!)
  • - Finally, the “Screen Vatican” to be way MORE COW BELL – explode it out of a room, bigger crowds and surface as an increasingly dominant medium in the urban context.

Storyboarding Intro

All about mediating between surfaces, scales and objects. I’m putting together the narration/script that goes with the intro as I story board more.

The current idea is that our faceted world is introduced after the “death” or transition from the surface of a drawing (at the moment farnsworth house can change not sure to what) and the entry into the surface of one single screen.

The faceted diamond of screens will never appear only as we transition from surface to surface we start seeing the appearance of more screens subtly and gradually. The big diamond of all screens will then appear as the faceted cosmos/globe of screens at the very end where all surfaces construct a ‘world’ of the event/things we were looking at but with a hollow interior since there is nothing beyond the surfaces themselves.

Also introducing a ‘character’ I’m calling her Pandora for now (after all I have a few boxes from my diamonds from Mulholland Drive to Houdini) her role is to be further explored for now she is reduced to a beautiful body that the camera man uses to flatten against the oil covered birds wings in the foreground and compose the sculpture of victory on the other end. (a sort of reverse Godard situation I was trying there from her eyes to camera to the objects being filmed aligned)
