Derailing My Train of Thought by Thomas Wightman
Says Thomas about this project: “The final book sculpture of my major project series. Like the previous two sculptures it uses a visual metaphor to convey the emotions of obsessive-compulsive disorder, and embodies my research by visualising an expression used by a sufferer of OCD. The expression was ‘derailing my train of thought’, because the person felt that the rituals they had to perform were disrupting their day. Where the compulsions and worry would side track them from doing everyday activities.
To convey this metaphor the sculpture shows a train travelling on a journey that has become disrupted, leading it to derail from its set path. Typography was used on the tracks for the title of the piece, also type was used for the coal. In the scene it shows the coal cart tipping over where the type has become mixed up to symbolise the mixed emotions during anxiety and panic”.
Abandoned by BrokenView
The structures of humanity can only persist as long as we can remember them. Even after their walls have fallen and their innards retaken by nature, they can continue to stand in the photographs of intrepid urban explorers, documenting their death while simultaneously preserving them forever.
Dance on Film by Niege Borges
Inspired by the events of the Dancing Plague of 1518, where several people took to the streets to dance maniacally until they died, Niege captured the choreography of some iconic scenes in film and TV, down to each shuffle, buttshake, and awkward little kick. Only with less dying.
