Ronnie Clarke – detached

WHAT CONSTITUTES A CONVERSATION THESE DAYS?
THINK PHYSICALLY, THINK DIGITALLY.
IS THERE ANY CONVERSATION OR INTERACTION WHEN SOMEONE DOESN’T RESPOND?
CAN I REMOVE MY SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS? IF I REMOVE MY SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS, DOES THAT REMOVE MY SOCIAL PRESENCE?

AND GOD, WHO ARE YOU TALKING TO?!

  1. Relaying the insincerity that happens online in real time in a dramatic, direct way
    Interaction with passing by viewers, insincere, blatant ignoring
    Interesting relationship happening with the performance and it transferring onto social media (snapchat instagram)
    How does it translate when complete video is posted online, specifically WordPress site?

  2. It was a really interesting way to interact with strangers. I like the way that you presented and use still image to interact the relative motion of people who passing by. This interaction becomes to a vivid contrast between you and others.

  3. Very interesting and mind opening performance. The use of documentation of Instagram and snapchat are a present social media activity and this really show how you can be apart of a digital presence, it is almost unavoidable.

    Must have been so difficult to stay still! I enjoyed the reverb of the audio. I thought it added to the performance in terms of realism and I agree with your decision to keep it in the final video. Sublime feels!

  5. The interaction with the public was an interesting perspective. Your position within the space was inventive and involved and I think this helped carry out your piece successfully.

  6. This is a really interesting piece. I liked how you explored digital interaction – because that’s not something a lot of people think about. The use of social media like snapchat, was really smart. I personally really like the sound! It reminds me of the dreaming aspect, and what people may hear as they fall asleep and into a dreaming state.

    staright document video, keep the video as the way it is,
    we can hear the noisy in the space, people walk by,speak to each other, or talking to the artist.
    Not too much editing makes the piece authentic.

  8. The interactivity of such a mundane act as sleeping is really reflective of our obsession with social media. I think the addition of the different documentation forms really add the viewer’s perspective successfully.

    Different take on conversation and interaction. I like that you didn’t edit the sound in the video and that you didn’t respond at all when people tried talking to you during the performance., makes the piece more successful

  10. Using social media as evidence that even when ignoring someone they can still interact with you was really effective here. The parallels you drew between your real life and your online life are really interesting

    Like any day in life where I live … on the streets. But, people talk less to the ones laying on the sidewalk, here, when they appear to be sleeping. Maybe, they’ll curse occasionally and tell them to “get the fuck out of the way.” You should try this on the side walk in Chinatown.
