Redefining Platitudes demands all members to choose an existing drawing or illustration from their previous projects and develop a narrative which is distinctive from the existing narrative of that project by exploring new mediums, textures, graphic styles, and rendering styles.
The world is engulfed with unending stories all around. The notion applies not only to humans, but each living creature, as well as a non-living object that exists. The existence of one forms a story in itself. All existing ingredients of this world play a role knowingly or unknowingly in these narrations.
A story can be categorized into multiple divisions. Broadly, we can summarize them as,
[a] a story that somehow evolves over the time based on some incidents that takes up its form through exaggerations & cooked up details, which can be termed as rumors.
[b] a story that is told from ages which eventually doesn’t confine itself to just a storyline, but becomes a belief, ritual or a superstition that can be termed as mythological fictions.
[c] a story that we live daily, nothing but our experiences.
As such, these stories can be placed on a timeline irrespective of its factual nature. This timeline helps us understand the originality and additions that occur to the story and how a narrative unfolds.
This crucial fluidity allows for permutations and combinations to exist that help us curate our own platform to explore and read the world in our own way.
