MRI audio-visual sketch

As part of my the residency I have been experimenting with archival film and audio, exploring how I can create sequences that represent my experiences of patienthood.

Today I have been exploring the use of incongruous sounds and images. Sound and images that do not naturally go together, as whenever I have had a period of hospitalisation it is usually the sound that is more evocative that the visual imagery.

In this small sketch I am focusing on the sounds of an MRI machine. When you have an MRI there are various sounds for different portions of imaging. I have cut the under water sections of film to attempt to recreate these distinct sections of imaging and sound.
