The first video, “My bloody Valentine”, used light in a way that I had not really seen before. It reminded me of stop motion, because it was like seeing the motion flashes where the girl on screen was before. While this was interesting and showed it being pretty fluid, I would be lying if I said that it felt good on my eyes. I am not really used to looking at such a bright white with that kind of movement, and the blue light contributed to this as well. I did think the music was very appropriate with it, watching it was a very trance-like experience.
My first reaction to Cocteau Twins was that I thought it was displayed with a very low resolution on purpose. I think that it was made that way so that the lights would blend more together as they seemed almost layered. A time I saw when I really thought it was blending was when the woman’s face was the exact same color or light as the background, so it felt like her face was extending into the background. It seems like they use this non-geometric free form almost as a transitional background, it made me think of a power point presentation transition a little bit, but it was so much more fluid and it almost felt like everything was one form but just transitioning to different forms as the video went on.
Lush had a very interesting take on form and light, as it seemed to also be a very fluid video with forms transitioning to other things entirely, but it all happened very fast to me. One part that I really enjoyed was how they used the fire a light. The first thing I usually think of fire being associated with is heat, not really light, but as it transitions from the red to the blue and into water, I really enjoyed it. I thought this was a very visually appealing video, more so than the other 2 as the colors and lights were not so contrasted in a way that hurt my eyes.
