Disobedient Objects

After thinking about using film and failure in my work I looked at the work of William Wegman and his collection of Video works from 1970-1999 most of which included him making films in his studio of him interacting with objects or making random skits

so in this clip he just sits for a while and then gets up and moves the chair and other objects which is the same for many of his clips where he lifts objects up and down in others the clips are based around his dog and it interacting with both him and objects.

What i’d like to take from this to go towards my work is that its very simple and undramatic looking and that when shown simply as just the video clip it has a lack of context and is just very experimentle
