While I was studying at Goldsmiths College, University of London for my Masters in Image and Communication (it’s now a called a Photography MA), I created a number of video poems as I went about my day.
Lexicon is a video poem which is comprised of an aircraft wing shot, accompanied by text from Marshall Berman’s “All that is solid melts into air”: a commentary on modernism.
I was very interested in using Adobe Flash for creating video animations, and the lines that scan over the image were created in Flash and then exported and composited.
