Media aura

Bill Viola – The Passions – an Exhibition on at the National Gallery London.

Lots of high definition videos of people’s faces in slow motion, displaying emotion, disposition, reaction.

The technology and medium makes us look differently at the everyday.

That was about it though. I couldn’t bring myself to stand in front of a slow motion face for ten minutes, once I got the message and realized 30 seconds had been stretched into 6000.

Aura and presence again.
