Thomas Jack Brown West Midlands, United Kingdom
Thomas Jack Brown is a video artist and creative currently living in the West Midlands, United Kingdom. His current practice is exploring the nature of the reconstructive memory through hand crafting old Super8 negative to form new versions of the images captured.
Thomas Jack Brown utilises a variety of video production processes in order to show his view of a host of human conditions.
Utilising the opportunities and qualities that Super8 film production, post-production and projection provides, he uses traditional methods of negative editing and applying other mediums (paint/ink/bleach) to alter the images imprinted onto the negative. Once the negative is ready, he projects the altered images against different surfaces (walls of different textures/colours, uneven floor surfaces).
If the altered Super8 footage requires further altering, he films the projection of the negative from multiple angles using DSLR's and uses Adobe creative suite to apply digital post production techniques.
From there, the pieces of work will either be distributed via the internet, or if the work has an intended location, the work will have been designed with the projection location in mind and the required technology will be put into place for the predetermined time of exhibition.
