Glass and Light Breakwave: a machinima by Tizzy Canucci

Glass and Light Breakwave

Well, moving images do appear to be my current passion! A machinima filmed at Glass and Light Breakwave by Frankx Lefavre on LEA6 in Second Life.

In the machinima, movement through and within the space is cut to a sparse, neo-classical piece by Kai Engel. As with my previous piece, Peatonville Bay, it glides rather than jumps or kicks. However, it is different in significant ways. First, the location is abstract, an art installation, rather than modelling a real life situation. Secondly, is timed to the music, rather than the music accompanying camera movements in pace and mood.

I love the name that was given to the installation, but I don’t know why, or how, it was chosen. It seems to fit so well though, the words being evocative of the transparency, light and movement – and further explanation might only dispel the magic! I visited late one evening and filmed a collection of video clips, and I was going to let them lie a while. However, I got an idea of what I wanted to do – needless to say, it didn’t quite work out like that, but it is close in style.
