This is the main idea I’m looking to work on and expand with. The medium I’m currently toying around is either an interactive panel or a zine with a short film. I’ll update with more visuals / writings / sketches once I’m back from overseas in late June.
Gist of the Idea:
The perception of the human mind and sight to the entry and the departure of life.The breaking away of the fear of the afterlife and the uncertainty one feels for death or for life itself.
The different perception of a Black Hole through,
The key tasks for this FYP would be to allow the Scientific, Religious and Personal aspect of the Black Hole to blend together to create a unifying conclusion to my fear of the unknown.
The aim of this project is to understand my own fear of the unknown and face it, using the black hole as a metaphor of the uncertainty and unknowns in my life. Through this journey I hope to eventually be able to face the future for what it is, both a way in or out.
The fear of the unknown is the base for the research into the black hole, with so little being known about it still and my fascination of it being a possibility into another dimension, breaking our concept of time and space.
According to NASA, “A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying. Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible.”
I chose the Black Hole as a representation because of the different ways you could perceive it. It could be seen as a new beginning to an alternate universe, an end to one’s life when the singularity shreds one’s body to pieces or a point where time stops. A black hole drawn on a piece of paper could be also seen as either an entry or a departure just base on one’s perception.
