I can be a bit indecisive. Two weeks out of college for Easter at a fairly vital point in my project is not ideal, as I don't have tutors and friends to bounce ideas off of. So I'm going to do a bit of thinking out loud here, and if you have any thoughts or suggestions that might help me make my mind up, they'd be very welcome!
Right. My mythology project. Six weeks remain to put together a final piece to exhibit in the graduate shows. I've been re-assessing all the pieces I've worked on in the project so far, and have decided there's two possible routes to go down.
1. Mythology and Science. Remember I did those It's Ok posters? Well I think there's some potential in the idea that mythology was used to explain the forces of nature when there was no science to turn to. So I'm thinking of maybe making a publication - "The Mythological Guide to Nature". It could then be turned up the other way (or maybe just a separate book), and you've got "The Scientific Guide to Nature". One presents the gods and goddesses in some way, whilst the other presents the science with the complex diagrams etc.
2. Preserving Mythology. You know how I archived the contents of Pandora's Box in an old frame? Well, I thought I could combine that idea with the empty jars concept, and have a series of empty frames. I'd make a book to go with it (like an exhibition catalogue), explaining what is supposedly in the frames (e.g Nemesis' wheel of fortune, or the discus that killed Hyacinthus). But the frames are empty to highlight the fact that mythology is not tangible, myths are just made up stories, yet we still try to preserve them.
I might just try out both options, anyway...
