Tessel-project proposal

Tessel-thesis outline

Realistic outcome for next meeting=


Been working with 'Dictaphone' and talking about the work... the thesis is changing, after having worked on the project: New emphasis: benefited from discussing my own work. theis: look into minimal music = the mantric power, making a film as a mantra, repeating but changing slowly sound and images working together. Investigating minimal art -and got to-abstract expressionism.

Q: howso?

T: There is a field; there is room for coincidence [restraints= a series of conditions which result in an outcome.] Ambient video.


Brian Eno = ambient music = ambient video

David Byrne= book on music

Books: Alex Ross: The Rest is Noise Fred Turner: The Democratic Surround (how since the 1940s the desire for total emersion developed) https://hub.xpub.nl/fabulousloopdeloop/index.php/The_Fabulous_Loop_de_Loop

What is the new question?: research in the parameters for my work. Look at parameters that exist in music and see how they could be applicable to video; look for instances in similar methods are applied (restraints, repetition)..


Chapter 1: about my work; talk about my own parameters and methods. Analise my own obsessions and interests; examine my own modes of looking (gaze); how do my methods build into a work?.

Chapter 2: Diving into method by which minimal-serial music is made provides a lens for understanding my own work. Theoreis about ...

Chapter 3: what conclusion can we come to? What have we learned about the horizon of possibilities? Outline framework for methods (= what I want to capture).


Outcome for next meeting


1: have chapter one written; have literature for chapter two ;

2: continue to make notes (record)
