Re: [-empyre-] AFFECT
Dear Millie and James,
Thanks so much for writing about your projects.
I've been thinking a lot about the psychological/emotional affect of
this kind of work on the viewer. For example in my "Panic" project
the viewers were able to record personal "stories" or responses
prompted by their experiences within the context on the project
space. So the viewer had a physical experience that prompted a
psychological one...thought, feeling, memory that was then recorded.
Millie explains that " I attempt cultural transgression. I experiment
with the capacity of immaterial, non-visual elements (e.g. sound,
scent), of unexpected sites, and of social interaction, for
disrupting traditional definitions of art " and James explains that
his collaborative work "infers a displacement and a shifting of the
dialectical terms and the viewer."
Could both Millie and James talk more about the
psychological/emotional reaction of their viewers--in both the
context of public space--the street and the traditional art viewing
space? What are the effects of this displacement/disruption/shift?
