Surface Treatment

test_13test_9 test_11I have been working on the surfaces of the larger telescape iteriors to express the formal/material argument of surface before I overlay the screens and the narratives they will display.

For tomorrow we can discuss the progress on the model together with the new script I’m writing for the next version of the film [to post later]

Some references to start bringing into the wider argument of fact/fiction, surface and nested screens:

The bizarre world of Netflix VR and the nesting of virtual screens within screens.

They Live (1988) which I mentioned before where the main character can ‘read’ the truth behind the media/advertisements we are exposed to – clip below:

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)
