I’ve started a thing.
I asked a control group of people (mainly third year university students at the University of Bath Spa…go figure…) three simple yet remarkably ambiguous questions for them to answer as they wished.
1. WHAT DO YOU GET UP FOR IN THE MORNING?
2. WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITATIONS?
3. WHAT IS YOUR GOAL
I received a lot, a lot of varied answers. These results have now formed the first stage of a set of four collaged images to represent a set of character sheets.
So Far our cast consists of W,X,Y and Z: An extrovert positive character, and introvert positive character, and introvert negative character and an extrovert negative character; each one captured in an abstract collage.
They look like this:
Every day or so I’ll be asking a new, ambiguous question. Each answer I receive will be randomly attributed to each character and represented on their collage, forming further details and fleshing out the set until they become formed characters in the form of abstract collages.
The idea is, my control over the growth of these characters and development of the images is diminished and YOUR (yes, that’s right, YOU) will directly influence the artwork. Each stage will be posted right here so you can keep an eye on your handywork.
So, the Next question is:
WHAT ONE THING WOULD YOU CHANGE?
Submit answers either in the comments box, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also tell me via twitter, all answers are welcome.
Let’s get this show on the road!
