Madame I, 2007, a short film for mobile phones
Madame I, 2007, a short film for mobile phones
The subject of a neurological study in the early 20th century, Madame I was a patient who had lost her ‘body awareness’ or proprioception. Her predicament and lucid description of her condition resonates with the disembodied nature of our contemporary networked lives, of everyday mobile and digital technologies.

The work transposes this condition onto a 3D animated character existing in a mobile phone, Madame I of the work’s title, who contemplates the nature of her disembodied predicament.

Madame I is an Artist’s Film & Video production supported by The National Lottery® through Scottish Arts Council and Scottish Screen.

Beverley Hood is an artist based in Edinburgh and has worked with the web and interactive media since the mid 90’s, creating projects that examine how we negotiate, identify and interpret transitions between real and virtual space.

Her work frequently addresses, explores and exploits the limitations and parameters set by programmers and developers of software and hardware, often working at the periphery of intended uses, teasing and tugging at the edges to explore the implication of the imposed boundaries.

Over the past five years her work has explored digital portraiture, interactivity, 3D and animation. This has been part of an ongoing body of work continuing the long tradition of artists’ representation, in particular self-representation in art history, expanding upon this genre within the context of 21st century technology and techniques.

Beverley has taken part in numerous artist residency programmes and worked with a range of international organisations to create projects including: c3; New Media Scotland; LUTCHI Research Centre; Akiyoshidai International Art Village. She is also Postgraduate Co-ordinator for the Masters in Visual Communication at Edinburgh College of Art.

First Person is a 3D computer game and art project. Its protagonist, the game’s character, is a portrait of the artist created with a 3D games character designer. The portrait, a distinctive figure clad in vibrant red, exists within a monochrome 3D world, created with the Torque game engine.

The character embodies and guides the viewer around the building, negotiating the space in a games-like way, jumping, strafing, etc with discrete extensions to real human prowess.
