Inspired by the work of David Bailey, I created my own performance. A sheet, plastic bag and shopping bag was covered over the head at different intervals. This made me think about the ideas I am exploring within this unit relating to 'boundaries of communication.' I created a dysfunctional atmosphere, by choosing a relaxed atmosphere and making it generic. By taking multiple altered stills it created a sense of hostility and almost a silent film displaying psychotic elements. I also conducted a short film, it was about movement, being able to control your body existing loose connections. There was a force, stopping the body from moving, like friction pulling against another force, but one being of higher existence than another.
