ALT TXT is a series of talks and workshops for youths and adults happening in January and February 2018. Organised by the National Library Board, ALT TXT explores the relationship and intersection of literature and narratives through visual and conceptual art.
What are you made of? It is said that tough times can reveal truths about a person, in all its beauty ugliness, essences and multiplicities. In this workshop, artist-curator Michael Lee will introduce various grilling tools for the in-depth understanding, discovery and transformation of the self, aimed at the development of a language for relating personal stories.
This workshop weaves introductory presentations of various perspectives on the concept of “the individual” (autobiography, existentialism and solitude) with workshop exercises (mindmapping and infographics) to reveal and reflect on the “selves” you may have forgotten, overlooked or hidden.
By mapping your multiple selves, you are encouraged to develop unique ways to share your stories through experimental words, images and diagrams.
About the facilitator:
Michael Lee is a Singapore-based artist and curator who researches urban memory and fiction, especially the contexts and implications of loss. He transforms his observations into objects, diagrams, situations, curations or texts. Lee’s Notes Towards a Museum of Cooking Pot Bay (2011) is a large-scale mindmap about a hypothetical museum for the neighbourhood around Telok Blangah MRT Station, which traverses time, space, reality and fiction. He is currently a resident artist (Oct 2017–Mar 2018) at the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore at Gillman Barracks.
