My Life in a Box (3mins)
Video made for The Interlude, FBI (The Frank Bobbins Institute)’s contribution to
Exchange Rates New York, USA.
Constrained by almost all of her house and studio contents either packed in boxes or stored in a shipping container Kirsty E Smith made this humorous short video to accompany her mixed media collage. Sound is an important element of Smith’s video works. The ‘cheesey’ 1980’s hit ‘Living in a Box’ by Living in a Box was the perfect soundtrack for the video and link (albeit only in Smith's mind) to the Cheesey Wotsits cardboard box which became an important part of the accompanying collage ‘From a Box’.
Camera, Concept, Editing and Sound: Kirsty E Smith
