I’ve been doing a pile of work on the ‘Semi Detached Cinema’ – following a group crit i realised that i really needed to do some work on how the piece was presented. I also found that the films i’d been considering didn’t work as well as the Coronation Street DVD I’d picked up, so i’m planning to work with that now.
Given the original premise, and that the popularity of shows such as Corrie is partially down to our urge to nosey on our neighbours, i wanted to represent this in the way the piece is viewed. I’ve chosen bits of a house that you’d use for low level ‘what are they up to?’ observation, namely the keyhole, peep hole, letter slot and a set of bay windows;
I also have a magnifying glass for the peephole side and a drinking glass to listen in, but i’m not sure if they’ll be needed. I’m putting on the roof on monday morning, so i’ll have to see how they work.
so, next up in the meandering whingings of Vix – MONKEYS! (they’re everywhere…)
