tikuls dreamy discovery channel presents// – forbidden_places*
thanks to our dear eve fainke [london based stylist / costume maker] we managed to make a freaky costume..
together with eve and andrzej we were making it for couple of nights..
following the concept [which me and fukalata created while listening to the track..] .. – a slo-mo impression of monster/quirky shape in a forest.. little visual poem.. with its simplicity and complexity of stream…
we decided to make a costume / wearable sculpture from founded objects…
costume is made from plastic transparent foil, and plastic bags + some bits of tulle fabric.. [all recycled ! : D - human waste..
we found it in a container outside the uni.. they were mainly huge plastic mattress covers.. etc + some other piles of plastic i collected at culture lab] we glued plastic surfaces together with a hot glue..
and build crazy looking soft synthetic shape.. which i could put on myself and act like a massive jelly-fish gremlin.. : D
it was strange yet amazing experience.. despite the fact i couldnt really breathe : P
this costume – amazing shape in motion.. was the main point of our experimental video impression.. loose dreamy vision.. playing with timeline / perception and non-linear structures..
we headed off to jesmond dene to record some ‘forest creature rituals’ : D
due to our work circumstances ..we havent got exact idea what the finishing bit will be like..
we were surprised by amazing shapes that were produced from the shape .. and how this plastic plasma was behaving when we applied motion and movement..
we used sony Z7 cam and recorded it in slow motion…
i’ve edited it together with andrzej.. low cuts.. and we used pretty much whole shots.. than we added some post-pro ‘ninja skills for making it look hypno 3d glasses backwards blurry vision and thats mainly it]
it is kinda funny cause even raw files looked amazing.. with very intense colours..
and the character looked like it was cuted and pasted there from a green screen : P strange.. cause of the light and some digital mess.. i think
im glad of the outcome… ! love it…
thanks to our collective creative input*
here is the costume try out with no mask/ hat >>
