This commission is for some or all of the grouped and individual film exhibits – total budgets stated include your fees and all costs for creating the film content. (The physical exhibit build and AV hardware is covered in a separate exhibit build budget)
All film work must present a diverse range of voices on the exhibition floor, with a creative practice inclusive to all potential contributors – considerate to a balance of age, gender identity, BAME, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation.
This exhibit unpacks the subquestion from the main constellation question – do our bodies know what time it is?
Visitors leave this exhibit with a realisation of how our bodies’ perception of time is affected by our lives on Earth with the daily light and dark rhythms of our planet and the sun.
The exhibit is a physical mechanism for turning through the day. As the light changes, the mechanism triggers fluctuating graphs of what's happening in the body, connected to short films of different time based behaviours: sleeping, eating, best time to process alcohol, best time to exercise, based on known research.
CONTEXT: We would like the exhibit to show that the light and dark planetary rhythms affect us as humans because it affects our genes. (Essentially, the light activates cells that are photoreceptive. These cells give instruction to genes that control our body functions).
We would like to shoot the exterior and daily comings and goings of We the Curious, to place this daily time related behaviour in hyper local context.
Duration: short 45s- 60s films for each position of the day on the exhibit (number tbc, likely to be 3 or 4)
Format: Needs to be formatted/shot to consider this being presented in a circular screen aperture on the exhibit
