Project Presentation 3; This is where I…

IMG_4796

This is where I… is guerilla theater graffiti – a story in augmented reality in seven pieces in seven places, to be experienced and participated in. Premiered on Malmö Gallerynight September 2013.

Through the free app Aurasma people could find, follow and respond to the filmed monologues which told 7 turning points for persons reclaiming their city and lives after having fallen victim for rape and physical abuse.

The number seven refers to the number of days and years it takes for our skin and body to renew itself.

The clips are milestones representing turning points and stages in their processes (like coming out of the shock, when the anger sets in, seeing the perpetrator again, realizing you’ve moved on, first time getting attracted to someone again, etc).

The placing represented where they’d gotten these insights, to remind us that every day, everywhere – coffee shops, grocery stores, in the street – people get life changing insights and make life changing decisions.

In the project I looked at how words help create our reality, the way we perceive it. Each monologue also refers to a physical fact or phenomenon such as a Higgs field, black hole firewall, the Earth moving in space etc, integrated with a perspective of being human.

In this clip, the sixth piece, the character sees the perpetrader again for the first time. It also refers to black hole firewalls, and letting go of someone and something that affected you immensely in a destructive way.

ACTOR; HENRIK ANDERSSON

MUSIC; LOURD (AXEL HJERTMAN)   –   MIERKA (LIVE)

 

In this piece the monologue is about the experience of the trial in terms of The Observer Effect.

ACTOR; PEDER HOLM

MUSIK; TOKE ODIN BRORSSON

 

The last example deals with meeting someone who attracts you, and therefore brings out all these mixed emotions in you after having kept your body in emotional hibernation since the assault. The person is referred to as a Higgs field, reminding the character that she actually has mass, a body.
