huh? 2004, 00:00:58 per revolution
Huh? is an experiment with the ideas of chance as proposed by the late John Cage. Raw footage was broken into three uneven segments (without looking at the footage). The artist then divided the segment into many parts ...and lengths. With her cursor she selected one video effect in Premiere and used in on each of the segments using different % of the effect (which was in retrospect, the mirror imaging tool.) The segments were shuffled and replaced in a new sequence. The artist recorded varying vocal sounds and then again, cut and reshuffled them, placing them beneath the images on the timeline without having seen the new random arrangement of all the parts. What emerges is a small abstract piece created randomly. Source material: Super 8 film from family archives from the 1950s.
