Hug Jumper

Knitted Jumper and Moving Image piece

Filmed in 2019 as part of my final body of work for University exploring ‘connection’. This was a witty and satirical video poking fun at families during Christmas. 

 

I wanted the piece to feel quick, refreshing and Lo-fi similar to home movies filmed at Christmas.
The jumper was hand-sewn together. I was curious how the couple would put on the jumper and I was interested to see whether it changed the way they moved. However, the result was a lot more awkward
and entertaining, I love how they leave their phones behind at the end. 

 

It's interesting to watch this video back within the context of the pandemic as it takes on a whole new meaning.
