Semi-Fictional Character of the Day #day28

March 16, 2014

‘The Semi-Fictional Character of the Day’ is a joint, one-month project by Louiza Mallouri and Constantinos Xenofontos. Constantinos will be sketching a semi-fictional figure every day, and Louiza will be writing an accompanying storyline, as inspired by that character. The aim of this project is to explore the way two semiotic systems, the visual and the linguistic, interact and complement each other to tell a story.

S/he always changed. S/he used different names, clothing, accessories and stories to create the person s/he chose to be. Layers of make up, dresses, high heels, boots, wigs, jeans… A screenwriter, director and performer of her/his own life. S/he didn’t take anything seriously, not even people-it was all just a play. S/he didn’t linger within a particular skin for too long anyway, s/he felt confined, trapped, defined, so every once and a while s/he would do it all over again.
