The Grey Space In The Middle
AEDEN Berlin Council.Plus
A Maze is a structure of choice making, a Labyrinth is a single road to
follow. Meaning, you have to master the road in a Maze by making decisions and choosing paths. In a Labyrinth you are submissive of the road,
you have to trust that it leads you.
This work takes aspects in both structures, investigating a journey of
performer Isla Clarke in a fictional story on virtual and actual worlds.
The virtual world deals with imagination - what Isla sees. The actual
world deals with reality - what Isla does and what we see.
The video work is constructed into 3 parts: Naivety, Roadblock and Liberty, where the Liberty part leads Isla back to Naivety - an
optimistic wish and desire for experiencing things for the first time again.
The circular structure of the video work illustrates more of a Labyrinth
where the roads within the body of work illustrates more of Maze because
the parts are influenced by Islas choices and actions.
The Actual world is made by Vixtoria Salomonsen and the Virtual world is
made in collaboration with CGI duo Orgaphine.
