shmu involved in 'Elliptical Readings' art project

Project is collaboration between Aberdeen's Library Service and Art Gallery

shmuMEDIA have recently been involved in filming an interesting project which is a collaboration between Aberdeen’s Library Service and Aberdeen Art Gallery. 

‘Elliptical Readings’ involved the filming of nine people, each reading from selected books for 3 minutes in sequence. The piece, recorded as an artwork, focuses on the words and the hands of the readers. See the photo!

The set-up for the session at the Central Library was really interesting and required the camera to be set up on a rig above the book in order to deliver the event’s objectives. Due to the specific requirements of the artist, Abigail Reynolds, the session involved the filming of the ‘dress rehearsal’ and the actual event a week later!
