Igor Bosnjak - 13 photos

5:22, 2008, Video Art
It is a video work that examines the shift between the two types of media practice: the film/movie (as the moving picture) and the photography (as the static image). How far can one go when analyzing and comprehending these two media.

The film - which directly originates from a photograph - here in an ontological way becomes a photograph, since that what is being filmed is the still frame, in other words a static frame.

The specific photo punctum and the sound imply that it is a video recording, but habit and perception make us believe it is in fact a photograph. This piece of work actually proposes the idea that there is only a slight difference between the two media depending on their perceptive and technological context.

Your film is about?
It is a video work that examines the shift between the two types of media practice: the film/movie (as the moving picture) and the photography (as the static image). How far can one go when analysing and comprehending these two media. The film – which directly originates from a photograph – here in an ontological way becomes a photograph, since that what is being filmed is the still frame, in other words a static frame. The specific photo punctum and the sound imply that it is a video recording, but habit and perception make us believe it is in fact a photograph. This piece of work actually proposes the idea that there is only a slight difference between the two media depending on their perceptive and technological context.
