Antibodies

January 29, 2007

Our first few assignments for Narrative are warm-ups for the larger semestre long project. I took this as an oppurtunity to do something a bit more experimental…

i wanted to play around with format and form, flow and direction as well as running two parallel naratives.

Antibodies was presented like an informational pamphlet about germ-culture – when folded out the first narrative strand is actually a personal account about growing up and how we interact with people, in other words being antisocial. The full piece reveals a second narrative strand that reads right to left (or back the way you came). This second piece of text is scientific and dry. The idea was to take all of these seeminlgy unrelated elements and to have them coalesce into a whole.

a fun experiment but a little nerve wracking at times!

in case anyone is interested – here are a few links to the things that inspired this: fractal art/nature , and these beautiful bacteria culture dishes. I had alot of fun trying to replicate that aesthetic – its amazing how nature can randomly generate such an elegant design.
