Thoughts on the Telephone process
At first I found it difficult to start creating from an idea that was not mine. I slowly became in touch with the work (monologue) that was sent to me; trying to connect with it. I had to study it, to know it almost by heart....I then decided that the best way to pass through the message without interfering with my interpretation was to "capture" the esence of it, like depuring everything around it (including the methods of showing) and just get the "soul" of the message. In that way I could then "encapsulate" the message in whatever I decided to do... and that the person recieving my work could read through it and capture the same message. like translating from one language to another. Although this was very challenging, I was enriched by testing my methods of creating and I was forced all the time to ask myself if the work I was doing was enough, was too much, or too difficult to understand, knowing that I had to play with "international" signs... This really opened up my mind and was an excellent exercise of creating!
