The work I produced for Futurity titled ‘A New Generation’ explores ideas about the children of Islamic State called ‘cubs of the caliphate’ which was inspired by the quote ‘a new generation of fighters’.
I presented the work on a small monitor with speakers to enable the audio to be loud and dominating. Along with this short film, I also projected a film still on to the wall depicting children playing in a river with one child holding out his hand motioning the number ‘1’.
I feel that the work was received well and definitely brought attention to itself through the intended use of loud audio, however I feel that the work may have been too similar to the work ‘Seeing II’. Both take a humorous approach in the way they have been edited and music juxtaposition, but having said that this could enable a series of work.
