Fay Chapman explores the theme of boredom, with the influence of Duane Michals and Sarah BahBah. Inspired by the artists’ styles, she has created a publication showing two sides to boredom. Chapman’s Boredom Publication is nearly 4 meters long, with an accordion-style fold that can be laid on the floor and stands freely. This project shows the passing of time and that we can choose two ways that boredom affects it.
The negative side slowly shrinks to show darkness consuming the person, not realising their day has passed while on their phone. In contrast, the productive side gets bigger and brighter, the images slowly get sunnier to show a more energised day.
