Story

A heroine in the third space utopia would fight against the giant, the disturbance, despite her small size and limitation. She didn’t know she could, and would be a warrior.

Inspiration

Japanese Yukata is the inspiration. First is because, I am a practical person. Looking at my schedule and deadlines, I think I should come up with a Read more →

Feliciana, I am very impressed with the way you are developing your costume based on your character sketch. Galina can help you with your questions about the costume, but I like the references to the Japanese warrior or Samurai to create a close coupling between your character and the costume.
Feliciana, I love the inspirations and your own translation for the costume design.I am agree with all your choices that you made for the kimono ,the silver belt and the colorful lights.I have sugestion about the sleeves material to be flexible black or charcoal grey stretch , representing the flexible side of the worier inspired from the famous Bruce Lee "be water" quote taken from the short lived 1971 TV Series Long Street, means to be able to adapt to every environment and situation you are in.

A jellyfish has no ears or eyes or nose and no brain or heart! They do not even have a head. Their body is almost totally made of water and is soft having no bones at all. Jellyfish are invertebrate animals because they do not have a spine or backbone.

My Idea

In my opinion, touch is a shock that Read more →

Concept

‘Futuristic Fantasy’ was the underlying idea behind my narrative, thus the aesthetic I was for my look was futuristic, edgy yet at the same time elegant and delicate. This is to convey the fantastical beauty in the technology, the wonderment in the third space. To add on to the fantastical look, I might use embellishments. I designed two different pieces, with some experimental preliminary Read more →

Exploration – Thoughts on ‘Touch’

During my exposure to the subject of ‘Touch’, interacting with one another via the third space, I explored my thoughts regarding the topic.

Looking into virtual space made me realised how it was something that we take for granted. It is so integral in our everyday lives, yet we often do not observe how it affects us inside. Read more →

Gladys, you provide many strong ideas for the narrative of Touch. Here is a list of your thoughts for class discussion: Here is a list of ideas for discussion in class: -- Looking into virtual space made me realised how it was something that we take for granted. It is so integral in our everyday lives, yet we often do not observe how it affects us inside. Only when we started consciously taking note of the third space then we realised how it matters… -- No matter how close and seemingly intimate, it will never be or replace the real tactile feeling… Yet, the feeling of ‘touching’ or even ‘hugging’ someone virtually, while not having physical contact – it very surreal and interesting. -- There will always bound to be glitch in the media, at times when we had virtual classroom we might face connection issues e.g. sometimes this glitch might be a beautiful thing -- Overall narrative: Transcendence into the Third Space, a fantastical “utopia” > Disillusionment > Possible endings (closure – fading away/open-ended – entrapment)… the audience would ask, did they get trapped there? What happened to them? -- the audience should feel that the performers are even transcending their own time and space. This can be achieved using the wearables… During the interaction with Angeline, our actions should transcend our current space and make the audience feel as if we are in the same plane as them…. It could be like as simple as making her dress interact when we perform a trigger action. -- the concept of an imperfect third space might be a climax. (dystopia)

My costume design is inspired by bees and bee colonies. I chose bees because I feel an affinity towards these creatures. Bees are like artists. Firstly, bees do not see colours the way humans do. They cannot see red but they view the world in ultraviolet (UV) light as shown below. This relates to how we learn to feel by Read more →
