‘analogue#1’ is a self-referential performative. The camera follows a chain of semichoreographed actions that resulted from a series of experiments and improvisations. In the video simple materials are utilized, like water, lamp, paint, a piece of cloth, in an attempt to evoke a dialogue with the camera frame and to create or edit a digital image manually, together with the performative labour. It is shot from a bird’s-eye view which allows us to perceive the spatiality of the scene. The image appears more flat or two-dimensional and a realistic image becomes abstract.
