Ball Hits Camera – Nathan Gray 2014 – 3:07 minute loop
Ball Hits Camera is a collection of moments of violence towards video devices, told by the devices themselves. It’s a compilation of accidental structural films where the sounds and vision is generated by the camera being struck, jostled or broken and the recording technology becomes the subject of the work. Commissioned by c3 as part of the online project lab Ball Hits Camera challenges the complacency of the viewer as objects repeatedly attempt to break the fourth wall and do the audience damage.
