Contingency as video research strategy

This article outlines the potential for contingency to operate as a methodological strategy in video practice using the examples of my own research into appropriation. My approach repositions appropriation practice away from gestures of critique and towards more nuanced strategies that focus on questions of meaning and extend ambiguity into practicable artistic methods. This is outlined in the network of influences and involvement and materials that formed my video project, Poor Old Horse (2016). Accordingly, contingency is positioned as a network of potential from which meaning forms precarious alignments and is accelerated through contemporary conditions of digital exchange.
