I’ve been reading the Illustrated Man- Ray Bradbury sci- fi book. I used to really enjoy Ray Bradbury, John Wyndham and all this..
Farenheit 451 interesting politically but also now re- digital reading etc….and the ‘destruction’ of the book….
Unlike Philip K Dick which seems prophetic, this book seems very sparse and focusses on living Mars after the destruction of the world!- Not jolly but interesting bearing in mind the news this week about ‘water’ on Mars…
As I was reading the initial description about the illustrations moving across the subject’s body I thought of the work projecting moving images on to a body 4- way projection – Slides and video
When I did that I realised that the reason was that I wanted people and ’embodiment ‘ to be at the centre of my practice , if not the theory behind it – moment of realisation
Now I’m wondering if I should look again at this projecting onto flesh….the body as a screen…..
