I have left the circus idea behind. I am now thinking of displaying the film in a clear cut environment.
I am unhappy with way it has been edited and am going to focus on one image for about 45 seconds to a minute.
I am going to either speak the words of the poem or have them displayed as titles.
These are my ideas-
-“Sweetheart I like the way you shake your tail feather” Male eating a red feather, smoke and feathers.
-“You are the queen of the bees knee” Cut between bees and my knees being grated with honeycomb.
- “Brothers of blues and lovers of so much more” female mouth, blue lipstick, eating red love heart sequins.
-“Come back to mine and let limbs tangle till dawn” Red lipstick line being drawn down a leg. Legs tangling.
Do I need two images to contrast each image?
I experimented with one sculptural piece. A lightly painted jam jar with many different sized diamante’s inside and some rusty nails. I took photographs of this. This was an exploration of the line “To scrape the stars into a dirty jar, with long and pointed nails”. I am happy with some of the photographs.
I am no longer thinking about stitching out the poem. Just having it typed and displayed, large.
