Freeze Frame

Freeze Frame
Photo Description:
197 x 78 x 70cm Burnt wood and glue gun My piece is called Freeze Frame. It’s made from ordinary wood and I used a hot glue gun to join it all together. It’s approximately 2m tall and 0.8m Wide. The story behind it is that it’s based around the concept construction and destruction and seeing things for a second and the next it’s gone. I wanted to reconstruct a piece that would look like something we wouldn’t be able see as long as we want. Imagine an explosion of a shed but freeze framing the explosion. That’s the part I want to retell. I first built a ‘shack’ out of old wood found in skips then set it on fire, this the ‘destruction’ part of it. During this process I filmed the event as a time lapse which I would use later. After gathering the wood afterwards I used it to produce my piece, the ‘construction’ side. I then put the footage I got earlier over top of it linking and joining the two opposites together, destruction and construction.
