Documentation - The Big Picture
Why does the work take the form it does? Why did you use certain spaces, props and modes of technology for this installation? Why do you believe this was the most effective choice?
The work is presented as a post on Flutter, a faux Twitter we designed to contextualise the piece. Our visual artist also integrated propaganda posts in the Flutter feed to mimic the biased and inflammatory content which is normalised on social media. Within the video, the web is depicted using fairy lights which the performers navigate through to connect the feeling of being entangled/entrapped in misinformation. The work progresses with the tension building as the dancers move throughout the web going in and out view due to the roving spotlight until finally, they are consumed and wrapped up; the body unrecognisable underneath the layers of lights and string; symbolising the inability to discern the truth from the lies.
How did you negotiate working in an interdisciplinary space?
We negotiated working with multiple disciplines through communication and collaboration. We worked in a way which promoted honesty and openness. Everyone was very generous with their time and feedback meaning we cultivated a space that was positive. Even though our styles of creating are different, we resolved any disagreements with negotiation and compromise.
