This short film presents a summary of my practice-based PhD research, for which I made a series of bead-embroideries and explored forms of active communication with non-specialist audiences about the need to tackle the high levels of violence against women in Chile and Latin America. Although my participants were not involved in the physical making of my embroidered artworks, they actively collaborated in the creative process by watching a video presentation of my work and its aims and consequently suggesting sentences or words to be embroidered into one of my unfinished pieces.
The film stays connected to process – both of the embroidery and the research.
Clear and a good use of mise-en-scene as an expressive technique.
The film documents changes that had to be made due to Covid-19 and it is refreshing to see different methods used in the study.
