Choice Tardis (2018)

Exhibited: Gut Feelings: OSE Final Show, 50 Athelstan Rd, Margate, 7 - 9 December 2018.​
Gut Feelings – Open School East

My Choice Tardis comprised a circle of seven outer doors through which at any time only one allowed entry to a rotating inner chamber populated by objects and statements that embodied some deeply personal choices. The user was however invited to either employ chance through the throw of a dice or their thoughtful consideration, to rotate the inner chamber and select a specific exit door marked by one of my statements – but, if they wished, to substitute key words with their own before exiting and thereby perform and viscerally experience both a real and metaphorical moment of transformation. These statements were: I miss the father I wish I had had; Life is good; I should have loved you better; I wish the pain would go away; I will always try to exercise my creativity; I shall no longer eat ?????; Hence-forth I shall be a different person [a non-opening door!] – and related to the past, present or future. The idea is that as the user passes through and closes the door, this action can symbolically strengthen the process of committing to the chosen statement. Watch out for the twelve-sided Choice Tardis to come! (I am open to commissions!).
