I a ra, I a ra (2018)

I a ra, I a ra is an animation with audio, made in collaboration between Rangituhia Hollis & Jeremy Leatinu’u.

I created the video in conversation with Jeremy. Conversations between us both contributed to the audio and development of the video; which takes the form of a narration of thoughts and discussions that we were having in relation to everyday living. Both of us reside in Manurewa.

In developing the video I was experimenting with the use of noise and pixelation. Using the overlay of compressed video to create these layers of visual noise. The images below are stills from the final work and the video is a sample from the start of the animation.
