Art and audiovisual narrative
By Pere Arcas
The blank page, the blank canvas, the blank mind ... Blank spaces are disturbing yet exciting when we fill them with content. It is a fact inherent in any creative act. This workshop aims to provide resources for its participants to lose their fear of creativity. We want to demystify the transition from ‘nothing’ to the idea. Creativity is a work process that needs method and tools to carry it out. The techniques of storytelling and visual language will be our companions on a journey that will lead us to reflect on the possibilities of the moving image in the field of creation.
Inspiration comes only when we seek, and to find it we must observe our environment. So we will take advantage of the privileged space of MACBA to seek out our ideas. Art is always a magnificent excuse to bring together artistic, linguistic and digital skills into the same project.
