Instrim – Feedback

I am glad to have finished and presented the video. It was a 16hr marathon, but glad I completed it and feel that it is going to be very helpful in writing my critical review. It is a dry-run that can be reflected on and improved.

To some degree it’s like putting ones work and ideas out on display to see how the public will respond to the work. This is not an easy part of one’s practice, because one never know how the public and or strangers and critics will reposed to the work.

With the peer group it will be a little easier than the public, because as peers of the co-hort there will be a little restraint exercised which will not happen when the work is presented to a critic or the public.

Reading reviews must be one of the most challenging things an artist, writer or film-maker can endure. With to-days social media the problem is compounded because the information is on the web, and its there forever. In the old days it was in a newspaper, magazine or journal and after a while it was in the trash or the archives and if one wanted to look for it it became an endeavor.

With search engines to-day, with the stroke of a few keys, any review becomes visible in a matter of seconds. Reviews written decades ago, that would have long been forgotten are  .0025 seconds away with the search engine.

If reviews are good, that is one thing, but a bad review of work is a whole other ball-game.
