DAN SHIPSIDES - Pan 360 - Landscape


Pan 360 - Landscape

This ongoing series of short, landscape based, video works are made by attaching a modified camera to a leash and whirling it through the space above and around my body. This simple activity of production dissolves conventional landscape scenes or views into sequences of dramatic visual activity where the landscape image is literally put into a spin. The raw video-scapes combine both the performative activity with the beautiful concordant / discordant footage of the environment.

Through this, it merges the figure and the landscape within a spatial narrative that is not constructed on the organizing principle of the static frame and single viewpoint but on the physicality of actions in the landscape embedded with functional technology.
