 why did I chose this area?

Identity.
Who am I?
The basic question, through all the centuries, that has remained unanswered.
Within the new postmodern context, we’ve found that we must reformulate this question. Growth in society models people, influencing and defining who we are. Since we’re children untill we are adults, society is what breeds us.
We should not answer who am I as an individual, but who am I as a collectivity?
How do we eat? How do we build? How do we love? How do we hate?
How can we know what we are? How can we represent what we are?
What does it mean to be Portuguese?  What does it mean to be an European?

To find an answer, we will find an opposition, a culture far away, on the other tip of the continent.
Finland.
How do they eat? How do they build? How do they love? How do they hate?
How can we represent what we are?
Who are we?
Identity.

There is no possible way to answer this question. All we can do is reformulate the questions. So, the question gets more complex, more intricate. How do we raise questions?

This work aims to raise questions about identity on the self, through the exposition of our diferences, our convergences and our divergences.
The way to do so is to raise these questions visually, through video, through documentary, through art, through science, through concept.

what title would I give to my work, at this moment?


From Aveiro to Lapland: Visual representation of an identity

“(Not) gonna do's, perhaps I'll do, don't have clues" of my investigation project


Gonna do:

Document life both on Finland and on Aveiro, finding a way to contrast and compare them, so the diferences between the two cultures may be attained by spectator

Create an anthropological conceptual model to represent a culture, composed from different elements that represent the basis of society, of identity

Create a visual documentary, resulting from the products I’ve collected


Don’t have a clue:
How I should structure my research method and my conceptual model
