The Frame Space

CSM MA Work in Process Show, UK
The relationship between the frame and the image continued from the very beginning of the visual communication in human history.
In this project, it was questioning about the configuration between image and the Frame. In three different video, doors and peoples continuously moving in different direction, which are layered by three different papers. Due to thinness of the paper, papers rhythmically swing together. Therefore, eventually videos get same sense of the spatiality.
The motivation of this project is to understand multi-faceted contemporary visual language in expanded virtual world. The screen is the window for another virtual representation. New type of Frame fix imagery into a system and same time exchanging the information through non-hierarchy hyperlink into spatial space. Creation of the cinematic narrative and representation of the Frame imagery, changing how we are communicate each other in digital era.
The picture frame interact with environment narrative and picture image. As the Renaissance painting invited spectators to spatial space by geometric perspective (Friedberg, 2009), mobilised contemporary screens introduces a new perspective in the virtual space. The Frame, including the picture, photo, movie, and monitor frame, cut into two parts “onscreen space” and “offscreen space”, which is presented as a physical line or border of the outside and inside.
Today, TV and the laptop ratio is following the cinema screen ratio, which can lead the audience the sense in the cinematic seamless and timeless fictional and virtual world. Further, it demands continuity to outside of the frame. Nonetheless of complicated or spectacular images, placed in same RGB – Red, Green and Blue sub-pixels.
The power of the audience induce universal equality to every image, and that equality provide average equilibrium.
