Disclosure – You & me (flume remix) Official music video
Viewing this video made me think about the act of kissing as the video is simply 4 and a half minutes of exactly that. I began to think about kissing as a performance and how it is similar to porn in the sense that the way we kiss in private is different to the way we kiss to be seen or when being seen (?) – research!!
In relation to my project and wanting to explore human behaviour I thought about ways of incorporating this idea and further exploring the idea of the kissed and the kisser in order to investigate a level of human behavior in terms of public performance and social awkwardness.
Another layer to this, as with my main interest for the assignment is not only the response from the subjects in a moment of privacy (then captured and made potentially awkward) but also the response from the viewer in witnessing this moment in a public forum.
I plan to look at the status of the people viewing in a sense that i can play around with secuality, age, gender ect as i feel different audiences will experience a different sensation when viewing it. potentially older generations will feel an element of disgust, especially as there will be potentially some same sex pairings (all at random but likely to occur).
Younger audiences may feel a different sensation, pending who they view it with. with same sex kisses a whole new can of worms is opened which delves deeper into social acceptance of homosexuality – again the viewers response to this could be alternating pending who they view it with ect.
