Podcast Critique

I thought Jamie's was the most creative. I could imagine this in the Hirshorn projected on a wall playing in loop where instead of sitting and watching the whole video, you walk by it briefly and observe it like the other pieces of work. Though there wasn't much action in the video, the video still seemed to be just as important as the sounds. It was more like a feeling than a film.

This was unlike Caitlin's which told a story. Don't get me wrong, it still had feeling, but it wasn't the same feeling. It was less of a feeling of meditation (like Jamie's) and more like the feeling one gets when watching a movie. You got to see the place changing through time, the different people (and animals) interacting with it and leaving shells to be remembered. It was a history, it was a tale to be told, while Jamie's was a feeling, something that has no time or place.
