Kaleidas

2016, Video Collection

1080 x 1080 pixels each, colour, silent

Loop duration: various

This work has involved creating kaleidoscope inspired pieces often using footage video games and everyday life. Many of the pieces have used footage from Grand Theft Auto V, a game well known for it's violent nature. Using video games to create the kaleidoscopes means focusing on the virtual worlds game designers have created and creating something new.

As this project progressed sharing individual pieces on social media became an important aspect, at the time Vine was still in use and was all about creating short snippet videos for people to enjoy so many of my works were created to follow the same formula. While some pieces are longer in length it is not the intention to hold the viewers attention the entire time but to create something aesthetically pleasing, and in certain circumstance made to sit in the background.
