·an assertion or proposition which forms the basis for a work or theory
Beginning on Friday November 13th, I created this online project to mark my 52nd year. For each of the 52 weeks of the year, I will make a one minute video and post it on the site every Friday.
Each video is based upon a question that forms the premise or starting point. The goal is not to define answers but to challenge myself to combine footage in a spontaneous way that is optically, conceptually and psychologically engaging. Each premise is explained at the end of the video and every week a new video is inserted at the top of the grid.
Like a sketch, these videos are an immediate response, but instead of being based on observation, they begin with a question. Only existing video footage is used, including clips that I have previously filmed, found or have been donated. You are welcome to become a participant and email me with footage under one minute, or a premise idea.
