I have been playing with the idea of how I’m going to format a final piece concept from the work I have been doing and being met with hurdles along the way. I want to create a piece which encourages; the telling, retelling, sharing and visual play of folktales. Now, this concept is difficult to visualise as it looks into how humans want to interact with each other and why we no longer tell folktales.
Jeremy helped me come with some ideas including an Exquisite Corpse and a Myriorama. The myriorama suggested to me was one by Tom Gauld called Endless Journeys .
This is a good example of a myriorama, however I personally think it is slightly lacking in intrigue. I feel like the sections all look very similar which although in some ways is the point so that they can be re-assembled. Yet, I think it that the colours are muddy and the visuals are repetitive. This is all very well to say but trying to rework this myriorama style will be difficult.
Also, had a brain wave while considering the format of the project “Tell (a) Tale” will get back to that later.
