Nicki Smith, Student Work

Artist Statement:

I used a delicate sheer fabric to conceal my body. My personal goal for this was to have an ambiguous figure roaming around. The "happening" occurs when the fabric billows around me. Water soaking the fabric, the sand getting on the fabric and the fabric dragging through the sand making marks is also part of the happening. The video has an overall sense of eeriness. I slowed down the film to .4x the speed and put an appropriate filter on top. I feel the color genuinely helps with the ambiguity of the piece. The underlying meaning for this piece collectively was to suggest a sense of knowing that left the viewer confused yet wondering.
