Friday 25th February–Session Four.
During this session, we had pre-organised that we would continue our individual gathering of marital, and not realising that the rest of the group wanted to meet as a whole, this is what we did. We were then called and asked to discuss some ideas about the collage. The rest of the group wanted to use two collages, instead of one collage and two shadow images. These two collages were to have one showing bias towards men, and the other showing bias towards women. The idea was to give the audience both sides of the argument, which ties in with how we want the audience to be free to create their own perspective.
So I began to focus my reading specifically on male bias, and female bias.
One way I did this was to find the different rights men and women have with their children (to link the play [killing of the children] to the contemporary issues i.e. ‘fathers 4 justice‘).
Research on the internet:
This website was the most useful in terms of finding male bias. I wanted to find anything to do with male rights with their children, because I thought it would be interesting if the collage incorporated the Jason vs. Medea battle, focusing on the children.
This website was mainly useful in giving me images that I thought would look effective on the collage.
This website was useful in giving insight into a female role in gGeek society, which I thought would be effective on the ‘female bias’ collage.
This website was poor for information, but it did provide some interesting Greek images of the different genders.
This website was also only really useful for classical Greek images.
