Everything Looks Beautiful in Slow Motion (2010)
Everything Looks Beautiful in Slow Motion is a window-based intervention set in the context of a shopping centre or high street shopping area.
The work takes a short 10-second video of pedestrians as they pass by the front of the window and subsequently replays the video in slow motion and black and white with an accompanying ambient soundtrack.
Slow-motion and black and white are standard techniques often employed by the mainstream film industry to emphasise key moments of a narrative in cinema. The piece utilises these tools to highlight the everyday actions of pedestrians as they pass through a shopping centre. It aims to elevate the validity of these mundane and often overlooked actions in a choreographic context.
