Retelling the Story


Crop of The Spinner by Billy Houdek, painting of a woman who talks too much while in the act of retelling a story.

Digital dots coming together are added. The image is zoomed into this area because its interesting to wonder what the best way is to show the transition from individual elements, like words, into more continuous forms, like stories. Furthermore, what happens if you want to retell a story a different way? When does it become a different story rather than a reinterpretation? How many of the original elements need to hold together to keep it the same?

Entire painting is below.
