Task 2 Filming
The Clock is an art installation by video artist Christian Marclay, the scenes of this video is with real present time reference of the day.In my filming work, I also chose to apply the technique of “ a series of fragments that builds a whole” in order to demonstrate the beauty of different area of city and people’s movement through the changing of the time.
In the video, The clock , the director had not only used the different clocks as a signature to divide the video into a series of fragments, but also used clocks as a connection.In my video, I have follow the same concept which is to film the different parts of city horizontally from the street with an iPhone 6 as a tool , the places I filmed such as Haymarket, Chinatown and Darling Harbour , are connected together by the real-time clocks. Through this technique ,audiences could view how people engage with architectures and facilities in the city during a day more distinctly. As the architectures in the city is a extremely important part of people’s daily life, it should be design to fit in people’s requirement in every time period and further to make the life better.
