oHello everyone! I need your help with an art project. Basically, this project is about breaking things! oEVERYONE CAN CONTRIBUTE
oYou can contribute by filming an object that has some kind of personal value to you while telling a story about the object, for example: who gave it to you; what does it symbolize for you; what memories are connected with this object. oThen, you break the object. oBut don’t worry, if you want to contribute but don’t want to break an object you are fond of – just break something else. As long as the story you tell about the object is plausible, it doesn’t matter to me whether it’s actually true or not. You’re the only one who will know the difference.
oThe project is about objects and memories: oWhy do objects become so important to us even if they are otherwise valueless? oIs it possible to convey this importance to other people (by telling the story of the object)? oIs it really the object that’s important – or do the memories stay the same even when the object is gone?
oThe video you record should focus solely on the object. Film only the object while you tell your story, and film the object as it is being destroyed. DO NOT film your own face – the focus must be on the object all the time. oIf you have to be in the video when breaking the object, that’s alright – but try to avoid filming your face. oThe length of the film is up to you, but if it is very long and can be shortened down without leaving out anything important, I might do that. oThe kind of memory associated with the object, as well as just how important it is to you, is also up to you. oThe deadline is Friday October 24th. oThe final product will be a compilation of all the contributions – the films you create will remain unchanged (unless they’re very long and can be shortened).
oWhen you contribute your video to the project, you agree to it being SHARED on YouTube when the film is finished. oYou will be credited for the contribution (if you wish to).
