A Yellow Tongue
A mixed-format text installation
For my degree show, I am working on a large installation utilizing the room’s architecture to construct an oversized diagram linking multiple short stories. Text, audio, space, and video will unite through flash fiction to express various notions of ‘low mood’ and, in contrast, combatant methods. Ticks consuming bus passengers, dawn and dusk as lovers, a bear with a yellow tongue, a woman bleaching her hair, and other fantasies each use absurdities with the mundane as metaphors for mental health shortcomings. I hope my work will compel the viewer to physically interact with the mind map, so that the story points may thread together a work that is both thought-provoking and entertaining.
