Here is a short video story I have produced which attempts to remember the two days prior to my Fathers Subarachnoid Haemorrhage when My Dad, my sister and myself had consecutive days out on Thursday 25th July and Friday 26th July 1996.
I thought that it would be interesting to try the recent Phonar Creative workshop with my Dad. As he is Partially sighted i thought it would be interesting to have him taking the photographs. I had just dropped off my Dad at my Grandparents house. My Nan was in hospital so my Dad was staying there with my Grandad and they were getting ready to go and visit my Nan in the hospital. Here is the Video we came up with.
‘does not suggest that death within 6 months is likely to occur’ is being exhibited at the Brighton Photo Fringe 2012 from Saturday 6th October until Sunday 14th October.
So far there has been a great response. I decided to try and work with the small solo pod i was given and go very large with the Photographs, pretty much covering the walls. I have attempted to make a really interactive space where people can come in and automatically feel consumed by it.
On Sunday 14th October i will be inviting people to come down to ‘claim their piece’. I want people to come and tear off a bit of the wallpaper for themselves to take away for free.
