my response to 'a line delivered'
Teetering on linear line delivered by shifted place, decoded semaphore to destination, to fall one side or other, deliver by history, deliver by vision, deliver by passion, deliver by care, born of discourse, born for change, dilute dilute dilute an ocean to flood, compromised contorted by agenda, lip sewn to wage, release release release, give back give back, deep map authentic intention, deliver intention, complete intention, turn word to change.
I asked my partner to walk down the line and balance..... as I get hints of place and narrative, often that clarify, reveal themselves later.
Somewhere like Laverknock Point is loaded in, steeped in, carved, etched, molded, worn, eroded by time; it is part of our Jurassic coast line.
I saw a straight leading natural ancient line, seemingly unnaturally straight, in ancient bed rock. I felt compelled to place person upon it, to precariously balance. Looking toward a body of water, a barrier, to an island destination?
Within my photography I look for metaphor, narrative, message, born of place, or from research of person. Seemingly sometimes delivered by collision of time place thoughts and the zeitgeist. Only reflection allows me to decode, or attribute a narrative.
This photo, moment has led to a new project I wish to deliver. which I see as expanding, futhering 'Creating Sanctuary' and 'Authentic Voices'
I wish to explore and research my socially engaged arts practice, my ‘art as activism’ further. Expanding on co produced localised narratives the use of 'authentic voice’ by exploring the concept of ‘deep mapping' as an investigative tool, as an interpretative device. Evidenced based, story based, enquiry based. I wish to deep map / research the core individuals, the drivers that created the Wales Future Generations Act which has been heralded internationally, not a Wales centric project. I am looking to explore reasoning, influence, relationship to place, community and its history. I am aiming to reveal relatable human commonalities to profile core intention, true voice before compromise. I see a multi layered multi media, multi sensory communication framework for delivering an emotive, relatable ‘vision’ to a wider audience.
