Multiscreen Elephant Man

by Videographic Criticism

Videographic work allows multiple sources to "talk to one another," so with this exercise, we asked participants to use a multi-screen process to construct a ‘response’ to one of the exercises produced by another member of the workshop. That is, they were to use their chosen film and integrate it with clips from one or more exercises produced by other participants.

Liz Greene achieved this effect with her video on The Elephant Man, which also engaged Michael Talbott’s chosen film, La Ciénaga, another movie with an especially rich, dense soundtrack. Further, while most participants used multiple screens throughout their videos, Liz employed multi-screen selectively, withholding and then strategically deploying the effect, both to invite comparisons between the films as well as to create the effect that all the images and sounds we see are from the same movie.
