360MC Power – Artefact Idea

After being given the task of creating a power artefact with these obstructions:

*Ask or examine a question about power.

*It must be thoughtful.

*Has to use split screen or compositing.

*Use at least one influence that we have seen/ talked about during the lecture.

*Borrow only openly licensed material.

*No series of still images or found footage.

*No rubbish.

My initial idea is based around looking at the two sides of climbing up the career ladder, with the influence from the television documentary ‘Who gets the best jobs?’ and also influence from the Vimeo video ‘Symmetry’. I want to show the side that builds their career and works hard for it and the other side where money, status, and connections is all you need. This will question whether the power of money and connections is key in the media industry or if hard work and dedication pay off more. Does the media favour those who build a career or those who pay for one, money or otherwise? The images I want to create I don’t want to be too obvious and taking the idea of opposites from ‘Symmetry’ I have thought of creating different images to portray the grafting side and the privileged side. For example on the split screen you will see one side cooking a meal and going through that process and the other side simply receiving a ready made plate of food, as I think of the term given to you on a plate. I will be researching into this case/question and thinking of images I can create for my artefact.
