[Part B: Drugs] Final Piece – The Tent of Many Hallucinogens, 12/16

To conclude this drugs theme I wanted to create a big installation piece that sums up my festival experiences and drug trips that others can also be a part of. I used the actual tent me and my boyfriend stayed in through two festivals, including pieces of clothing, accessories, sleeping equipment and baggies that have also come back with us from these events. I wanted to create this experience to be as true as possible so only put in real objects that would be found in a festival tent. I created the video and audio piece separately but merged them together to be projected into the tent from a Youtube video. The video didn’t result how I imagined, it was harder to simulate shape movement without the proper programmes and the strong light from the projector was impossible to avoid when being in the tent. I also had to edit the video last minute as when I first tried to project the clip into the tent the colours were too weak, so had to increase the saturation. People thought it was amazing and an accurate representation of being at a festival, the smell of the tent still recked of mud and piss, the objects they didn’t want to touch as they were either rubbish, worn clothes or drug related and the overlaid live drum and bass and grime music sounding real, as well as the shadows of people with the talking matching perfectly simulating the feeling of real people stumbling past adding to the festival vibe.
