“Researching Materials” is an experimental video piece which addresses the frustrating element produced within communication.
Since I have never directly addressed the concept of communication before, I thought it would be useful to do some further researches into the topic. Particularly, I wanted to focus on the struggles in getting messages across and more specifically the role that language and non verbal signs have in interpersonal conversations.
My approach with this piece has been very playful and simply driven by my curiosity; I went around with my camera for two days asking people what did they think communication was and how would they describe it.
I did not know exactly what to do with the materials I had collected but I started experimenting and playing with it and the outcome was a video which turned out to be quite funny but exhausting at the same time.
