|Abstract: ||Doubled Up tells of the film maker’s shock at finding out she was expecting twins. Using multiple perspectives from mother, artist, children and medical professionals, she reassesses her life and experiences. Referencing Prof Mary Kelly’s (University of California, Los Angeles) ‘Post-Partum Document’, the film uses diagrams, layers and multiple perspectives to process chaotic information into a diagrammatic and functional structure. The effect of this process, the imposition of order on what appears to be random content, can be seen as an ironic masculinisation of what Kelly calls the ‘monolithic mother-child relationship’. The medium of the moving image allowed Moore to use layers – including those of three and four dimensions – and the subject matter of multiple birth to increases the number of simultaneous perspectives.
The piece was digitally constructed using a combination of archive material (digital video and found items) and original imagery combined in Painter, and Premiere. It was an investigative work, bounded by the available found material. Visually there was a diagrammatic motif throughout. The structure was non-narrative but still made a linear progression based on chronology.|
