Monday 21st, November – Sunday 27th, November
This week I presented my research and experiences around the word RITUAL. Week seven was already difficult with facing equipment shortage (lights and backdrop) and time limitation for different facilities to practise and record in the university. In week eight the experience became lot harder because while I was preparing for this week presentation my computer broke down and I end up with very little material to share in the class.
Documentation of the class and feedback
I contributed the basic understanding of the word RITUAL and how to approach and be part of a it in a respectful way by drawing comparison through showing videos and practising an activity in the class together.
I talked about my personal experiences connected to performing rituals with my biological family when I was in Pakistan.
After the class and during the rest of the week I was reliving those past moments in time. My mind was travelling back and catching up with those memories of enjoying meditation and performing rituals. I was also drawing comparison in my head, where I was and where I am now.
This week there was a very little progress towards my personal project. I was struggling to find spaces in the university to record my performance since everything is booked or not suitable (dark enough) for my project. I extended my lights booking to give myself more time and flexibility so I’m hoping to find a darkroom before the deadline where I can record my shadows performance.
