‘Remember’ – a ONE creation

This was a video I created in Nov 2011 at one of the excellent ONE (Obstructions Networking Event) workshops organised by arts practitioner and all round talented gent Arron Fowler, whereby participants are invited to create a piece of artwork within the parameters of certain criteria, or obstructions (inspired by Lars Von Trier’s film The Five Obstructions).

The obstructions for this piece, if memory serves, were:
– I could not be recognisable in the video
– Theme: ‘ending’
– Make a 3D object and feature it twice
– Abandon a technique/success strategy I usually use
– I had to interfere with the work of the other practitioners

See if you can spot how I met these parameters!


The ONE workshops are held on a regular-ish basis at The Creative Studio, Butcher Row, Shrewsbury – the next one will be on the 12th of February (this very Sunday) and you can find more information about the event (and ONE in general) here

About Emma Puente

I am a freelance artist mainly working with digital video, regularly managing video productions for both organisations and individuals and specialising in the documentation of arts events, exhibitions and performances and interviews, as well as creating my own films. In my own work, I like to examine the poetry in the commonplace, the beauty that goes unnoticed, and the ‘what if?’ I work with a variety of technologies ranging from high definition broadcast suites to low-cost mobile devices. Clients and employers have included British Library Labs, PQA, NCS The Challenge, Kings College London, Thinktank Science Museum and AL Control Laboratories. I am an independent Arts Award Advisor (trained to Gold level) and have worked with numerous community arts organisations in the UK, sharing my skills with young people interested in media production and the creative industries. I have produced and delivered hundreds of video projects, technology-based workshops and public art events. I also offer services such as media conversion, image editing and occasionally design/illustration work. I have my own equipment and car, and can multi-task like a fiend.
