THE SPACE OF FICTION

+ Attending
+ RSVP!

"In a world of constant flux, in a time where things seem more accessible than before, I long for the unknown while wanting to hold on to the familiar. There are two identities coexisting within myself. The first one is the known, the reassurance. An identity that becomes apparent the more I distance myself from it and the place where it was born. The second is the unknown, the one behind the next corner. Going is a part of my second identity, it always expand and give room for new experiences. The presence of the two identities increase the further I travel. To me there is no alternative to not going, and I can only search for the one through the other. The same applies when reading fiction. The entrance to the imagined space is only reached through knowledge of our existing world. To turn a table you first have to know what a table is." - from 'It Had Something To Do With the Telling of Time' by Annee Grøtte Viken This class will explore fiction as a tool for approaching, thinking about, and creating space. The tools that are used in fiction allow space to materialize in the readers imagination by weaving together the images from one's own experience. In this class we will examine a number of short passages from well known works of fiction in order to open up how we approach real space, and suggest how it can be explored and altered through the subjective act of storytelling.
