‘You Could Sunbathe in this Storm’ 2014
Space, forms, colours and sounds symbolise a recognisable world. Plaster shapes, materials, liquids, chemicals and crystals are carefully choreographed around the screen using a mixture of stop motion and After Effects animation. Creating visual poetry that encourages viewers to contemplate the bigger picture. New beginnings put an end to familiar patterns and the viewer is left to wonder whether they shape as much as they are shaped.
‘An Interpretation of Perception’ 2015
Original Film commissioned by Ideal Standard. For ‘An Interpretation of Perception’, Dunseath worked with raw EEG data collected by Ideal Standard that displays how the brain reacts to beauty vs functionality. Using the topographical data graphs as a starting point, she bought the results to life using real world imagery. The movement is organic and familiar and representative of the brain waves they are associated with: sharp and erratic for the Beta waves and slow and milky for the Theta waves. The imagery takes the viewer back inside the brain whilst simultaneously reminding them of the beautiful and functional elements so often seen in nature.
