Video tennis match; a collaboration between Benjamin S. Beauchamp & William Fulton as part of the Digital Factory Residency at the Firstsite gallery in Colchester.
Here a short video depicting a screen recording of the facial recognition on Facebook (mis)identifies the FaceSwap image of myself dressed as Andy Warhol and images of him and his work featuring his face, which I have replaced. The original altered photos were by William Fulton, as part of the Sunday Group Critique.
Firstsite VJ Workshop 24.4.16
Documentation of the VJing workshop at Firstsite led by Liam Roberts and Frazier Merrick, with fellow Digital Factory resident Sian Fann.
A demonstration of collaboration, the resulting works as shown here illustrate the collective work of all participants, their shared authorship reflects a shared ownership, distilled through the lens of photography, where the event itself was one of unity; unique spontaneity, but the post-script, the photographic documentation, is inevitably marked predominantly by the photographer’s hand, regardless of any egalitarian intentions.
