Freeflowingvisuals

  1. The aftermath of a bush-fire which has damaged and scared the earth. A new wilderness emerges to reveal an apocalyptic landscape of burnt earth and ash. This is the primeval world that the performer relishes; giving distance from the virtual reality that he abhors. He rubs his body into the dirt and ash so that both are one - truly physical. The camera, that symbol of the virtual, that metaphysical tool, is made to feel the pain of this naked physical world of dirt and ash.

  2. "Dull Red Heat" - 2006. (format 5:4). (pixels 720x576). (Original duration 00:19:36)

    A candid view of the city in motion; its people and buildings merge into a montage of organic complexity which we are all a part of.
    "On Tuesday afternoon I start my camera at Harbour town in the coffee shop with an image of people sitting outside then move around to look at all the retailing. it seems like a lot of hard work, this shopping, endless sorting of things and moving from store to store. One store manager is puzzled by my wearable camera and makes a smart comment. I catch a Cat bus into the city and try to think of a public toilet as i am busting. We pull into the railway station and i head up Forrest Place to the Barrack Street council toilets which are very quaint, a de-mountable shed with a lady behind a window as you go in. She is the Cleaner, so you can report any problems with the toilet to her. I use the urinal which was very clean and floor spotless. Some old fellow was at the hand basin and mirror trying to fix-up his quite shabby appearance. I move outside and see the lady behind the window reading a big book. Perhaps she is a Law student studding for exams. She gives a quick look at me as i pass." (Performance notes - Perth, Western Australia. 2006)

  3. "21c" - 2011.
    (format 16:9). (pixels 1280x720). (duration 05:02). (Audio stereo).
    This work places us within the passive world of the tourist in awe of the natural beauty of our planet. This is an unreal world were human vanity competes with natural beauty.

Video made by a technique of merging still imagery into a flow of images quite different to that produced by a video camcorder or that of a conventional slide show. Freeflowingvisuals is about a freedom from depicting and defining a particular subject and in its most pure form it is a technique where the camera operates of its own free will. This could be seen as a kind of Performance Art where the performer unconsciously documents as he performs. This is facilitated by strapping a camera to the the performers body and allowing the camera to capture images using an interval timer.

Freeflowingvisuals started as the Silent movie "Dull Red Heat" in Perth, Western Australia in 2006. The movie was shown the kerb gallery, together with the ambient noise of cars, people talking, walking and having fun.
In 2011 Freeflowingvisuals became the official name given to production of Performance-Videos where improvised Performance and Video documentation are the creative tools to make new visual experiences.

I am interested in performing and screening improvised works in different venues and to audiences who appreciate experimentation in the Arts. Please email to: freeflowingvisuals@yahoo.com.au
