Single Shot

Ori Gersht - Pomegranate (2006) © the artistHere's another example of how the wallies at Arts Council England waste taxpayers' hard-earned money: Single Shot. The main venue for this nonsense is Tate Britain from 3 November to 10 December 2006. The title refers to a series of newly commissioned film and video clips all shot in a single take. Example: what looks like an attractive Dutch still-life painting turns out to be a pomegranate demolition job when the fruit is exploded by a high-velocity bullet in excrutiating slow motion! This is art? Ho hum; Bollywood here we come.

oh. I rather like that idea - but why slow-motion?

Hi, Jacoblog. Long time no hear. Hols, I guess.
Not just slow motion: ULTRA slow motion. The idea is to watch all the pips bounce off everything and for the whole innards to spray out like a slowly moving waterfall. According to the blurb it's incredibly beautiful, but you know what I think of blurbs. Believe it when I see it. In the meantime I'll stick with CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Some of its slow-mo shots are really cool and to the point.
