days until the presentation.
In 24 days from now we’ll be ready to present our art.
SO MATEO HOW DOES ALL OF THIS KIND OF STUFF START?
I DON’T KNOW I GUESS IT KIND OF CHANGES THINGS DEPENDING WHERE YOU ARE.
*TRAVELS TO ARMAGH*
OH WOW, YES THAT’S QUITE DIFFERENT NOW.
Today we had a five minute non-stop free writing session to allow our ideas to melt from our minds onto our sheets of paper. My entire brainstorm can me found here later tonight: on this blog.
Here are some important words and phrases that I have in mind for my upcoming play:
digital sight vs. nature sight
I think this awful fragment of a sentence from my free-write helps me connect to a somewhat larger idea that sparks my interest: “…about how we can take in and experience Northern Ireland with the beautiful bodies of water and the pasture while still being able to clearly define it from a culture, political,visceral perspective..”
The play could deal with the constant conflict between humans, space, and the difficulty of retaining a clear identity–which means it does not have to follow the stories of people from Armagh but Northern Ireland could serve as a background contextual source. The ancient tales and powerful presence from mother nature leaves a certain kind of silence left in Armagh from the people who live here today.
If I want to take the graffiti route for finding the meat of this play I could continue to search for where the art is placed around town and then search for the reception/reactions from locals. Is it still making a difference today? FREE MARTIN COREY. I’m sure it does. I would also explore how graffiti is connected to “voice” and how graffiti can function as literature.
The juxtaposition of digital sight and sight from nature itself interests me because as The Gaze in society is changing via social media, we still interact with the power dynamic that nature has when it comes to light, photography, and of course, weather.
The brainstorm showers haven’t finished yet- stay tuned.
