chosen material...?

From mulling over the functional side of `Resistance`; the essence of resisting something in particular, my mind has wandered into the realms of human desire. This is mainly within the sense of attraction, stemming from the idea of a reaction of instinctive sexual urges and how these would collect as lustful temptations along with how these can compound within neighbouring perversions such as fantasies, pornography and seduction. I am wanting to focus on how such lecherousness may be suppressed.

My intrigue is filled by the way in which people may place certain restrictions in the face of attraction and class their desired intentions as negative acts in a similar context to guilty pleasures. From this, there are numerous allocations that can be expanded with such as confidence, charm, beauty, impression, personality etc.

With my collection of ideas i spoke to my tutor. From delivering as much of an outline as possible he seemed fairly confused at what exactly i was attempting and/or challenging...and so was i. 

Despite my cogitations, my informed direction is somewhat mislead by the ways of the brief mainly in regards to how i can work within the boundaries of a poster format with my subject matter. My main worry would be how i can creatively and effectively congregate aspects of my material and transpire them into symbolic innuendo-like features that function within the mechanics of a two-dimensional visceral plane. This initiates more brainstorming in relation to cementing justified imagery that correlates well in signified form. 

Unto all this, when discussing all of my shizzle with my tutor, we got on to a small debate of what i found most interesting medium-wise and starting deliberating over installation work. For a very long time i have always incredulously adored the grandeur of installations and had bountiful aspirations of wanting to try them out for myself. I yearn for it. For my last project in a group i had the chance to indulge somewhat. I am jealous of space, open space, having the opportunity to mould it, shape it, fill it, change it in whatever way possible and changing it again for the hell of it. It is so easy to submerge yourself into and adopt the space, entice and encapsulate it. 

I suggested a certain concern of taking on a task as an installation by myself with how i could bring it to fruition considering obtaining a space and utilising it to it's full potential. My tutor reassured me of the responsibility involved and proposed a different angle. Basically constructing an installation, forming a set, using models, props, lighting and so forth, and then capturing all of it in one frame through photography. This could then be applied as a poster, through some rework on some editing software, it could end up very successful. I love it...

My research is to continue within the 3rd dimension...
