A Written Perspective, 2012
This video is in part an illustration of the philosophical proposition, “the world is written”, and in part a critical experiment into the ever increasing rationalisation of imagery though ubiquitous mediation. Using a custom text detection algorithm, footage from around the Joondalup Shopping City has been processed. Everything that is not determined a word, is erased. This custom algorithm does not look for known letters, but rather in an attempt to avoid anglocentrism checks for properties common to the written word across all cultures.
Winner of the ‘Award for Excellence’ and ‘Celebrating Joondalup Award’ at the 2012 Joondalup Invitation Art Award.
