We are Both Storytellers

We are both storytellers. Lying on our backs, we look up at the night sky.
– John Berger, 1984.

There is a particular effect that stories have when they are recounted directly in front of you. The sensory information from the environment starts to fuse with the narrative itself, creating an experience that is equally physical as it is psychological. This is what I will do. I will tell you a story: At Daybreak, from Italo Calvino’s Cosmicomics, by embedding it within the room it is told, through the use of sculptural installation, ink transfer, and photography. The story will take place neither here nor elsewhere, but somewhere in the middle; between you and I – We.
