(im)possible futures and (im)probable pasts
MetadataShow full metadata
This research project explores ideas around the storage and transmission of memory, myth and experience. The concept of an impossible community, one that exposes personal and historical narratives through physical presences is considered in relation to the possibilities that occur when the two collide. Without channelled intervention the project cannot exist. Through a physical negotiation a portal is opened into the present. The latent is brought into being. The question arises, how can a site of maximum energy mergence be both identified and occupied? Intrigued by this transformative potential of presence; the project is rooted in my ongoing negotiations, collaborations and performative interactions with local subcultures. It is my intention to imbue audiences with a new communal mythology – a multilayered ‘Chinese whisper’, tales of supernatural lust, anxiety and a desire for (im)possible futures and (im)probable pasts.
