Oh, Yoko

For one of my classes, I had to make a photo response to the current exhibition on at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) 'Gestures and Procedures'. I took a few of these bad quality images on my webcam, they are immediate and unedited. Tomorrow I'm going to go to Officeworks and blow them up really big (A0) for submission on Wednesday.

I want them to be pixilated and ghostly. I was inspired by the grainy and unsettling aesthetic of many of the videos in the exhibition. To me they are similar to a video diary on a Reality TV show or to some kind of seance or exorcism. I like how they're just a bit shit.

My favourite work in the exhibition was Yoko Ono's 'Cut Piece' from 1965. You can view it online here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2IgqYiaywU&feature=related
