In cold dollhouse

There’s a lot to say about the Domains17 conference, and many more insightful writers than I are on the job. Hopefully I’ll be able to make a contribution. But first I want to talk about one of the artworks in the museum/hotel/gallery. Tim and Jim told me about Chris Roberts-Antieau’s dollhouse replica of the Clutter family murder scene from In Cold Blood, but you can’t really capture the real-life creepiness in a description, nor the impressive detail. I tried to make a video of it, which came out creepy in its own right, but still doesn’t do the work justice. I made a quick video with my phone, moving from room to room, from top to bottom, and it was pretty lame so I looked for something for a soundtrack. I found some Quincy Jones music from the film version of the story, so I put the two together in iMovie. I slowed down the video, and it just happened to come out to about the same length as the track I picked, Seduction (YT). The slow motion, plus the soundtrack, change the effect of the video. See what you think:
