Lost: Connections

Elevator pitch:

LOST: Connections

Lost: Connections is an interactive exploration of the characters and storylines of the television show Lost. It will provide a new, spatial way to experience the relationships and narrative of the show by mapping the many connections between the characters and allowing the audience to interact with them in a non-linear way. Through both a two-dimensional and three-dimensional cartography of the island, new sensations and a deeper understanding of the show’s complex story arc and characters can be revealed. A map of the character’s connections will be presented in a two dimensional plane; moving and interacting with the map will reveal the scenes in a three-dimensional environment that is projected in front of the audience.

Rodchenko: lessons in scale

It seems that one of Rodchenko’s (many) gifts was his ability to conceptualize with a sense that his structures could vary greatly in their size. From some of the photographs, it becomes an optical trick to determine how big a structure actually is.
I was reminded especially of artists like Mark di Suvero’s works at the Storm King art center in mountainville, ny. You get a sense of this idea scale in great effect; in an expansive outdoor space you can view structures from so far away that they are almost like toys, but you also can interact with them in their monumental reality.
