Annie Connolly and Lilly Donlon Good Girls Gone Bad We are going to play with layering projected images of found and original footage while simultaneously playing an original sound track. We are pulling inspiration from the five-out-of-five star recommended show, Sonny and Cher's Comedy Show as well as from Andy Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable. The goal is to create a disorienting and dreamlike experience for the viewer through the layering of different mediums.
Morgan Shapiro Skipped Forms An exploration of childhood through modern media. I created an Instagram account, @skippedforms, which takes my childhood videos-- which have never been uploaded to the internet before-- and brings them to the forefront of social media. In addition to the videos themselves, the process is important as well, with all the videos being a VOB format, which is long outdated.
