Little Meeting, Big Thoughts
Below, please find some spastic thoughts from my 1-1 with Dana.
- Children's Macabre Media
- Juxtaposing children's horror within each exhibition
- Identifying language trends in children's media and exhibitions
- Use these things as a design constraint for the physical interaction with a conspiracy theory
- How does this type of media influence a children's way of learning, entertaininment/ method of playing
- Interacting with Conspiracy Theories
- Using the museum/ exhibition format to encourage interaction with the conspiracy
- Extracting the spatial and dimensional facets of conspiracies, removing the distance from the medium
- What is the intent of each exhibit? exploring the experience of conspiracy, encouraging curiosity, lighting a fire in children to question what they are told and how they are told to think / problem solve
- Having a bold statement: positioning it as entertainment, an artifact for those who had this interest in children's media, using an arts-based approach, present as a sample study (incorporate it into the research paper)
- Distrust of the actual medium: because you are seeing something that is so distant from your regular POV, presents a mysterious / disjointed view
- A non-human POV creates an uncanny moment in time, displaces the space/time of it.
- What is the impact of a shared viewing vs. seeing something alone? Can we recreate this sensation in the museum exhibit
- Some thoughts to ruminate on:
- Children's macabre media encourages scientific exploration
- How our point of observation (scientifically) leaves a trace
- Children's media is the artifact that leaves a trace and primes certain people to indulge in conspiracy theories actually or as an entertainment method.
- Within the paper I can address more questions that arise
- Arts-based research
- Patricia Levy, Method Meets Art
- Spooky Action at a Distance (traces left behind)
- Katie Mitchell, Virginia Wolfe's the Waves
- Multimedia dioramas, theatre dioramas, staging, live dioramas, space dioramas that already exist?
- Exhibition lighting, theater lighting,
