24. Zones of Interpretation

Plans taken from the mappings of Kafka’s The Trial (1925) are layered, creating a palimpsestic state where all spaces are experienced simultaneously within ‘a vast network…an ocean of possibilities.” (D. Lynch’s Inland Empire (2007))

Scaling up and printing reveal the glitches, ravaged textures and determined shadows under a forensic microscope…

This process of interpreting…

reinterpreting,

copying,

tracing,

copying,

translating

…interpreting…

Constructing a 3D interpretation of Kafka ‘floor plan’…

TRACKING BY TEXTURE

‘No one here has ever come back the same way.’

‘There’s no going straight here…things change here every minute.’ (Quotes from Tarkovsky’s Stalker (1979))

“И небо раскололось, как свиток, когда оно свернулось “

(“And the sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up”)

 

 

Note to self: MAINTAIN KNOWLEDGE OF THE ESSENCE AS WELL AS FORM/KNOWLEDGE OF THE WHOLE AS WELL AS DETAIL

    1. Thanks. Rather than the inadequate space offered at college we have decided to have an exhibition at the Jam Factory in Oxford. This will be an exhibition of mine and Rebecca’s work, alongside Jo and Julie’s work. Looks like it should be in November. Watch this space. Hope you are well.

  1. This is looking really good, Matt..

    Hope you are having a productive day.

    Just checking – are you likely to be in tomorrow – I think you said you might be working at home?

    All best,

    Jo
