The Abstracted Human Element

My first piece for my Time Based Art degree in Dundee. The very open brief was to produce a sequence of stills relating to any aspect of “human”. After a few ideas that didn’t quite resolve, I had the idea of deconstructing the human body itself into its chemical elements and then compare these elements to everyday objects which are around us.

Some of the items are more of a creative interpretation of the element rather than cold, hard science fact but are still based on research that I carried out. The use of black and white images along with the uniform size and orientation and the typography is intended to emphasize the feeling of the psuedo-scientific intention of the piece.

The soundtrack elements represent the cohesion of these vibrating particles and the idea of sequences imposing structure.
