The image unfolded was generated from words collected from mind maps produced in the studio, while developing new work, during my master’s degree at Chelsea College of Art and Design. My intention was that by creating an inventory of my artistic practice, I will at the same time document ‘the space of the idea’. The piece became a way to explore the relation between word, image and story, a way of developing an alternative to the sequencing of events and shots in a film. It is based on the repetition of the words ‘image’ and it is ‘unfolding’. The work seeks to document the gaps between images, sounds and sentences. Subsequently I used the text to produce a silent single-screen video (in 2007), bearing the same title.
