It’s the encoding breakdown from video streaming of Thai Prime Minister, Abhisit Vejjajiva, (as of 14 March 2010) interview on NBT regarding the pro-Thaksin protester rally towards Bangkok. Of course, the last few pictures are photoshopped but the very last one when he turns blue is authentic from the streaming. He looks like that exiled tycoon-turned-politician.
To satisfy my obsession and to deal with the flood of photo shots of junk on the streets of Sydney, I make another work to send in Video Art at CoFA for the loop project. It is about a year when I first one of the series in the workshop with Metro Screen, Anywhere Chairs and then Waif.
This time my subject is dead TVs and I push myself up a notch by doing it frame by frame like animation. It is finished a week in advance before the class viewing because the evening clashes with Marrickville Art Prize opening night. But it has not been shown the to class yet. So yes, you see it before it is official. Unfornately, the compression cannot cope wih a video that changes almost every frame like this one. However, you can see the better encoding version in Quicktime Movie. Be warned that the file is fairly large (11Mb) for a 30-second movie.
