I am just trying to create something relates to these old frames. Even it is imaginary and fictive. Some of these old frames are from charity shop and vintage market, which are unique and special. But I don’t know too much about these old frames. I only know when I see these old frames, some VISUAL LANGUAGE/IMAGE are started to appear. It could be narrative and ambiguous. I think it is a collage of the old frame itself and my own imagination.
I got three times tutorial with Jonathan from the beginning of the April until now.
I just did very few pieces of my video collage works. I am not satisfied with these collage, which are too artificial. I need to make more.
I want to have some inspirations for my creative collage. I decided to inspire by some poems from Iceland. I think probably I can find some interesting relations with my collage work. In this tutorial, Jonathan was asked a lot of questions for details. Some questions are linked to installation of my work. I realized that all of the details in artwork are quite important. Even a very simple detail will effects different results and meanings.
After my second tutorial with Jonathan, I did some experiments with different versions of poems on paper. I did test on typewriter. I found it is too difficult to be done. Actually I can’t easily control each sentence and I also need to seriously focus on the layout when I write something.
I think a poem could be my creative inspiration. I want to find a topic for my further collage work, which could be more narrative and more meaningful. At the same time, I decided to use some old frames with my collage work.
Jonathan told me that I need to pay attention to old frames themselves. Probably I can create a story for each old frame. It means that these old frames could be instead of the poem as my creative inspiration. On the other hand, I think this suggestion is another kind of collage, which is quite mysterious and imaginative.
