“Pidgin Signs” Exercise

Reviewing my Mystory project in its current state produces several patterns that can also be associated with the language or “pidgin” I am creating in my project.

Several of my blog posts as well as my two completed discourses are heavily doused in the idea of a space or setting (my grandmother’s house, my local library, the churches I attended with my family, etc.) and nearly all of these spaces are touched in some way by my family. I would posit that the central aspect of the pidgin forming in this Mystory blog is one concerning images of family/home scenes. Even in exercises where I did not directly create an image concerning my family, the end product almost always includes some reference to a space that grounds and centers me as an individual (the High museum, driving in my car).
