ON THE MODE OF EXISTENCE OF NARRATIVE AND STRUCTURE
Mark von Rosenstiel
In “On the Mode of Existence of Narrative and Structure”, Mark von Rosenstiel presents three new sculptures and one video work. The works all examine the identity created in narrative’s structure when it is faced with holding a seemingly complete story.
Three perspectives are shown within the sculptural elements: the continued reintegration of the parts of narrative (stories I try to tell the same never are), bifurication in the scale of narrative (the space above and below us), and the limiting of data inherent in narrative (many ways of blue).
The video (little pointless actions can be the hub of a wheel) acts as a prologue. It is meant to exhibit the way that well formed narrative (internal or external) exhibits properties like a wheel hub allowing it to exist in a state where it contains it's purpose entirely. This idea of contained purpose is important in the construction of all the pieces.
