PIM Project iteration #2: on the streets

Project 4 Iteration #2 The second iteration of the video for Project 4 has advanced significantly from the previous iteration and sketches but is still very much a work in progress. In this iteration I am working towards assembling a piece that captures the feel of working on the street rather than focus on the interviews and … More PIM Project iteration #2: on the streets

PIM Iteration #2: Reflection

Reflection on Iteration #2 This  edit has really brought the work back to the affordance I am exploring, portability. This piece is beginning to capture the feel of moving through busy city streets and glimpsing as you go into people’s lives. The camera’s unobtrusiveness allowed me to film moments without people becoming self-conscious. There is beginning … More PIM Iteration #2: Reflection

PIM Project 4 Sketch: Selling God on the street

This is the first sketch exploring the topic of people who work on the streets of the Melbourne CBD. This video is an exploratory sketch. The speaker gave verbal permission on film but I hadn’t thought through what I needed to say so I think this isn’t a strong permission. As a first sketch this … More PIM Project 4 Sketch: Selling God on the street

PIM Project 4: Reflection at the start of this project

For the work in Project 4, I am continuing to explore the affordance of portability. But while picking up some of the outcomes or findings from my explorations in Project 3 I am moving to a different topic in terms of the story I want to pursue. A key element of portability is undoubtably the unobtrusiveness and … More PIM Project 4: Reflection at the start of this project
