Land's End 2005 kick-off fixture.
What stories are you being told? What
stories are you
Spatial Stories explores how stories, both recieved
and those of our own making, traverse, organise, regulate and inspire.
We will be collecting stories of experience, of knowledge, of
obligation and of fantasy, then looking at how they relate to the
concrete, the spatial and physical end-products of everyday life.
What are places and spaces saying? What are we doing with them?
they doing? How are we doing?
We will be looking for differences in the
playing field between the fiction and the concrete, between narrative
prose and reality. It is like collecting instances of the American
Dream and catching the smells, tastes and sounds of the trailer park.
Like seeing travel stories as a means of mass transportation. Like
collecting and sifting geographies of action as in the daily news,
television news reports and legends then writing a letter to your
newspaper, for all it's worth. Like scratching away the layers of
identity we have covered and decorated ourselves with - how we create
our own stories, places and spaces.
