FS100 Garden test

Spent 10 minutes in my small garden today looking for something to film with my FS100 as a bit of a challenge, absolutely nothing interesting so mostly focused on some macro shots of the fronds of some ferns. Wanted to see how steady I could get shots at 50P hand held and how sharp the image was.

It’s a great camera, I’ve got a Blackmagic Camera coming though so trying to work out where this fits in with what I film, so far it’s my best slow motion camera so I’m not looking to sell it, if BMD bring out a 50P firmware update though I will have a harder decision.

Garden Affairs

In GARDEN AFFAIRS Lotavian-Russian and
German gardeners talk with one another
in a video installation. They discuss local
problems, develop global dreams, and pose
everyday questions.
How can one move a garden house from
one side to the other when authorities force
one to give up the garden plot? Are the
rules in German garden plot communities
really so strict? Do you have problems
with snails when you eat salad? What is
your favorite recipe with vegetables from
your own garden? Did the first Christmas
tree really come from Lithuania? Why
do German gardeners love garden gnomes
so much?

Jeremy Keenan – Garden of Signals – Finalist at Sonic Arts Award 2014

Garden of Signals expands upon the use of audio feedback in earlier sound works, forming an autonomous sonic artwork that uses feedback as a sound material and as a process.
Like pieces such as Steve Reich’s Pendulum Music (1968), and Microphone by David Tudor (1973), or the later work of Agostino Di Scipio, Garden of Signals is born from material possibilities at the heart of sound reproduction.
Garden of Signals was initiated with an interest in remote signals, such as mobile telephones, and how they affect the movement of human bodies in physical space when we respond to them. The pervasive multitude of distant signals appears to be a random and invisible process, but has a tangible influence on the domain of the flesh.
The loudness of the feedback coming from each of the 6 speakers is measured, and then influences the movement of each guitar pickup, which further changes the fluctuating loudness of the feedback coming out of the speakers.
In this way, the collective relationship between the sound from the speakers and the movement of the guitar pickups creates continuously shifting patterns of sound.
Garden of Signals was realised within the framework of the 2012 Artist-in-residence Program of the Gas Natural Fenosa Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC) in A Coruña, Galicia, Spain.

Guitar pickups, speakers, motors, purpose-built code.
