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
