My Hay Installation: Part 2 - Forming an Outline
I then asked Hodmandod Senior to take a look at these and sort them into two piles - ones we thought worked, and ones he didn't. Luckily, the 'worked' pile was bigger. I took these passages and reworked them a little, trimming them so they would make sense on their own. I then thought of a question that each passage answered and then used these as my series of headings:
How we got there.
Why we left.
What we found.
Who was there.
How we found them.
What they did for us.
What happened next.
I thought each of these could form a back- bone of my installation and each short film could branch off from each vertebra.
With these in mind I then looked through the collection of pictures I have assembled during my research for my novel - pictures from my trip to Patagonia, Wales and a lot of archival material - to compose my films. I then constructed a series of short sentences which I could illustrate with pictures - each one leading up to passage selected from the book. I then opened a powerpoint file.
