Description
Summary:The thesis project focuses on the narrative and uses identity as its subject matter. The narrative is examined through digitally manipulated imagery as a dynamic system of performative sense making implicated in both self-creation and reality creation. The fundamental role of narrative in creating self/identity and community/history, as embedding contexts is considered. The role of variously language and acts, community, disnarration, and the limits of systems are examined in relation to identity and issues of intelligibility, coherence, and 'tellability'. The work which results from an examination of this area are semionautic emplotments of operally mediated events in a quasi-mimetic experiential evocation of real life, that is "true fictions".
