With my initial exploration of the separation of the factual and fictional realms which mainly stressed on the fragmentation of emotional spaces along with exploring the tension between chaos and imposed order I thought it would be interesting to try and bring these ideas into a 3 dimensional existence. The object I am aiming to produce would represent these qualities (hopefully).
As with Janet Cardiff, she uses the existing city as a base upon which she can, in fragments, build up a fictional background narrative. ( A story which I am guessing is of the last victim of Jack the Ripper, Mary Jane Kelly, who was rumoured to have long red hair ), Anyways, what I felt would be an interesting move forward from this would be to do a similar breakdown like Janet, but of an already fictional reality. And try and come up with a narrative of my own, which in turn gives rise to art/object/model showcasing these thoughts in an abstract form. I was looking at the movie Metropolis and the separation and surveillance the ‘upper world’ had over the ‘lower world’ and how this would be interesting if within that world of imposed order , chaos was introduced and kind of represent that bit of chaotic fiction as if frozen in time.
Layering fiction upon fiction to try and create an alternate reality as Janet does with her walk.
As of this moment I have come up with an idea of how I aim to represent this but only in sketch form. I would be introducing different materials to represent it.
Although I feel it would be interesting to venture into this I would love some feedback/reading as I am not as confident with it.
The sketch was quick so doesn’t quite bring the idea across clearly. But will be updating on the progress soon, right after I come up with a steadier scheme.
