The Body Uncomfortable Conclusions (Part 3)

Creative Development Rationale - The Body Uncomfortable

My Body Uncomfortable comes from not liking people to touch me or to have people touch my things. It makes me endlessly uncomfortable, almost as though my soul is itchy.

Over the 10 day Body Uncomfortable Intervention, I explored the idea of space on a multitude of different levels; Space within myself, My presence influence on other people, My presence influence on the world and the universe and The concept of Space as an element of life. This can be found on my Blog - You can all of the posts here. Over the time of the intervention, I explored different ways of intervening in space, both within myself and within the environment around me. I explored how I influenced space.

Using my findings from the 10 Day Body Intervention to fashion my representation of Space and how I perceive these spaces.

I want people to be able to understand how hard it is for me to let people in and to have that kind of emotional connection and then express it through physical elements.

For the 10Day Intervention, I made short video clips as to my experiences with my experimentations of Space. After my ‘Big Spaces’ experience in the Cinema, I made a Stop Frame Animation, the finished product will be a part of the final piece. I completed three Water Colour Artworks, which will not be displayed but can be viewed on my blog as part of the Emotional Process and journey.

The final piece is three, square boxes that hold three different kinds of space. The first is of my experience with other people. It shows coloured strings being held together with Small Clothes pegs, while the background shows speech bubbles. This is a representation of my connection to people, and how hard it is to physically touch them. Often these kinds of relationships are barely holding on to reality. 

The second depicts a small self-portrait and falling stars. This represents my personal space and how I feel within that space. It stems from my inner turmoil as to what it means to be a live and an existentialist presence. 

The third piece of the artwork shows a bottle of sweets in a carnival setting. There is a sign that instructs you to guess how many. This is a commentary on how we take up space and how we perceive space and the presence of material objects that take up this space, rather than focusing on the people that we love and making space for their presence in our lives.
