Dark/White Cube: The differences between a direct and indirect interaction with the experimental film

    Research output: Contribution to ConferenceAbstractpeer-review


    As a Syrian artist and researcher, my practice-led research is using the experimental video practice to respond to the Syrian conflict. In this presentation I highlighted the experience of showing my research experimental videos, and specifically to highlight the difference between presenting the videos in a lecture/conference and sharing them online.

    I started the presentation with displaying one of my experimental videos, which allowed me to discuss the differences between a direct and indirect interaction with an the experimental film and to compare my personal experience of sharing the video on YouTube/Facebook and exhibiting it in an academic talk. The comparison was between the number of views, comments, and feedback, the way of giving and receiving the feedback, the artistic and educational background of both audience, the temporality and permanence of the display.

    The previous comparison allowed me to conclude a number of findings that are about spreading the video's message, the efficiency of conversation and feedback about the video and the atmosphere of sharing/exhibiting the video.

    The findings led me to conclude my preference, which is exhibiting in artistic and educational atmosphere and finally I presented the positive and negative impacts of both methods of experimental video display.
