RIBBON EXPERIMENT/NO MUSIC: JP from Jennah Porter on Vimeo.

The act of tying and untying the ribbon is almost hypnotic to watch. The interaction of the hand and the bow demonstrates a special relationship between the user and the object. The way the ribbon becomes something else, a bow, when it changes form helps us better understand the changeable nature of objects and the way this communicates different things to the observer. By changing form, objects speak to us without saying a word.


ROCK EXPERIMENTAL ART VIDEO: JP from Jennah Porter on Vimeo.

This experiment documents the relationship between the user and the rock. The concept of interacting and communicating with an object is explored and the rock uses the paint to 'speak' to the observer. Whilst the hand determines the path of the rock, its movement is entirely random. The rock decides what is ultimately communicated.
