Act Natural (2008)

Kim Coleman and Jenny Hogarth.

 

Multi-channel video installation comprising six looped videos.

Through themes of the man-made and the natural, the choreographed and non-choreographed, each video in Act Natural presents subtle physical and temporal shifts in the nature of material objects, and how both bodies and cameras respond to these changes. The videos are presented to reflect back upon their subject but also on the tools and actions involved in creating, compiling and editing them. The process of making is incorporated in the works, something we want the audience to become aware of. 

Act Natural was created as part of the performance to camera South West Screen, Picture This residency for Picture This, Bristol and MoBW, Bath.
