I am now reviewing my draft project proposal for the 3rd year and found it didn’t clarify anything for me, so I need to re-write it.
I have used this time before term starts again to do practical work in my own time and see where I go without the feedback from college.
I am playing with the form of writing in 3 dimensions, this brings a fresh perspective to the writing. These may be just tools to enable thinking in a new direction, enable me to beat new paths through my writing that is restrained in 2D.
I had started this with ‘Wood for the Trees’. I am now considering that piece to be a kind of art-life meeting place. To me the piece takes on different meanings easily; for instance: the strips of writing standing up represent people, with the ones in the centre having much connecting them to the people around them, and then there are the ones at the edges who are possibly lonely and not mixing with others much through choice or not. To me, being in the centre is bliss, with self-chosen times of solitude to replenish my equilibrium.
Is this weird? Probably, but I do find I have many interpretations for this 3D piece, whereas my 2D ones have one explaination to me.
I find the story in the 3D piece captivating. Perhaps it’s the possibility of a story and relatable experiences.
