Final video

The final video is made up of 30 clips of the process behind preparing each clay piece, each varying drastically in length due to the mood i was in on each day. Every video seems to show the five behavioural stages of an impulse control disorder; an impulse, growing tension, pleasure on acting, relief from the urge and finally guilt (which may or may not arise). There is one clip showing one of the clay pieces being destroyed at the end out of frustration but can easily go unnoticed until you look for it.

The original sounds of the recordings were drowned out with background noise but i think that they were unimportant to the concept anyway. I did explore editing in sounds that could possible imitate them but found that they were distracting and would also limit the video to two viewers at a time in the exhibition which is more hassle than it’s worth.
