Everything Looks Beautiful in Slow Motion is a public intervention that takes short 10-second videos of pedestrians as they pass by the front of a screen and replays the videos in slow motion and black and white with an accompanying ambient soundtrack.
Slow-motion and black and white are standard techniques often employed by the mainstream film industry to emphasise key moments of a narrative in cinema. The piece utilises these tools to highlight the everyday actions of pedestrians as they pass through a shopping centre. It aims to elevate the validity of these mundane and often overlooked actions in a choreographic context.
