are you working with a reference? how visible do you want to make it?
for me, these are questions related to how an audience understands the material. in the farewell project, c and i asked a lot of questions about source… for example, what is the source of the material… what relationship is there if any between the source and the viewer… how can the source come from the viewer.
with the fm project i find myself asking questions of source only this time the questions are how authentic is the material… perhaps it needs to be very authentic. on the other hand, maybe the work should move beyond the source making the links to reference dissolve…
the answer seems to lie in the experience of the participant, and how much value should be placed on imagining the reference.
