Transit – Andra Antone

Conceptual analyze:

I am interested in the unpredictable; it is the most prolific stage, when everything has the potential of becoming something. Senses sharpen, you perceive gradients more clearly, you respond instinctively, with the fear of a scared cat. No thinking - that is what scares, the fact that there is no time for any analysis. Space and time expand and contract in these key situations, when decisions seem to be forced by external tensions. The result of these unwanted decisions is a schism within the conscious psyche, as if you get something that you never asked for, as if there was too much external pressure. A series of multiple personalities, adapting, changing, devouring, they all rise from the individual in the search for a direction. It is just a matter of settling with the anima and animus. All the decisions that seem unwanted are controlled by the unconscious, which do not necessarily make them reckless decisions. After a while, the decision making process moves from the unconscious to the conscious. That is when you actually feel you understand something from your little mental strike.

It interests me to understand how space perception changes in these situations.

How much tension can you absorb?

How much chaos can you master?

Space-time-psychic analyze of project / Storyboard from 1, 2, 3, 4 to 5

1. Label: beginning, THE beginning – Weather: sharp, looong horizontal line, so much stillness, so much silence, what a white sky - – Mood: confident, stepping in decision, this is the silence of the clean man, who makes his own line there is a beginning and there is an end to all things, everything is CLEAR, CLEAN - Direction: Towards east! There is no mess in the way, and why would there be any, everything has been done the way it was meant to be done. Clock: on time. Things fall into place.

2. Label: under adrenaline we respond quite different/. Mood: things that magnetize fear intensify the fascination. Weather: STRONG, I am being fed so heavily. Direction: everywhere. Knowing the way.

3. Label: the red carpet, the Crossing of The Red Sea ……Weather: dispersion. Direction: things keep coming in the way…..mood - but standing still on both feet. Time: things are wasting my time….get out of the way! There is one way, the ONLY way...leave out.

4. Label: give me a smile! – mood: after a transplant, maybe they got something wrong there, I think….. i’ve just BEEN REPLACED WITH SOMEONE ELSE ….. Weather: fitting within the scenery, the usual, some wind, some sun, some more wind, some more sun, some friends, some lover, some good times and some bad times ….Direction: so sad, very sad, there is no other way, just smile and wave. Direction: Constrains, Everything is going in ONE direction…just not in control of the situation any more.

5 Label: broke my sunglasses…….i don’t dare to ask how that happen…don’t care how that happened. Does it even matter? Weather: drama – Direction: no escape, Mood: help.

6. Label: Bliss. Mood = Weather = Direction. Equilibrium. The state on nothing = the state of everything. Super Label: Sunshine, I just found a new smile….don’t think that the word “sunglasses” has even existed.
