Performance Video

Yesterday was the launch of our next unit, performance video. We have been asked to make a musical instrument and perform with it. This has to be a dynamic improvised performance that will explore the subject of ‘belonging‘.

What does belonging mean?

(a noun)

1. something that belongs.

2. belongings, possessions; goods; personal effects.

Happiness felt in a secure relationship: “with his classmates he felt a sense of belonging

I’ll need to explore this subject further as I start working on ideas for the project. At the end of the day, I’ve got to come to my own own conclusion of what belonging is and relate it to some personal event that I’ve experienced that will be used as the concept of the piece.


I’ll be specialising in the Digital Media Production pathway so I’ll be focusing on creating emotive expression through effecting video and sound in a performance and on real time programming software, video mapping, etc.

Here are some examples of performance pieces:

Etienne De Crecy

3D Mapping on the Guggenheim Museum

Inflatable Street Art

Gorillaz – Brit Award Performance

Subway Drummers
