WALKING [2008] Video is a performance!

Video is a performance! In this film we have the example of the recorded relation between video camera, body and nature. During the walk the camera was without any controle of the eye over the image. Eye didn’t force the body to innatural smooth movements. Camera had recorded with the big zoom and very fast shutter the natural landscape, with the subjective human dynamic organism. Hand leaded the lens intuitive, and finaly in computer during the editing I could to take the most interesting and dynamic parts, use the timeshifting or negative effects [basic for the film in itself]. This performative action is part of theoretical discourse of structural film, polish analitical vision of structural film, and british landscape-stuctural film. in the context of video performance this video is not a saving of artists image, but saving of artists body impulses. So the body implicated into the film image is a part of aparatus, also like the body of spectator is a part of dispositive.
