The Movie Theater
Meagan chose to create a group of surrealist essays based off of images that were discovered by the Data Subcommittee during the study. She performed this task by doing a “mock surrealist association” with the informant day diary data from February 12th to March 5th.
35 images were recorded and three wereÂ selected for this surrealist essay group by a random number generator. She discovered, ironically, thatÂ the three final images revealedÂ typically repressed Freudian concepts of the unconscious: sex, death and violence.
After selecting these images, she studied them and started associating words that came to my mind with the image. Once she gathered a rather exhaustive list, the most interesting ideas were selected. Thus, the surrealist essays were formed.
â€œThe Cemeteryâ€ was based off of Informant 3â€™s diary on February 12th concerning a story about his father passing away. â€œThe Movie Theatreâ€ was based off of Informant 10â€™s diary on March 5th concerning a ‘Date Day’ with the informant’s spouse. Finally, â€œThe Penis Clipâ€ was based off of Informant 9â€™s diary on February 23rd concerning a hair clip that was found during work hours and how it got passed around the workplace.
“The Movie Theater” was illustrated by Cooper Cox.
â€œCoworkers were moaning around at work all week about the 32 hour work week.Â For me…..I work 50s almost every non holiday week, so I looked at it as a week of relaxation AND since I knew ahead of time I was off Friday, I talked wifey into taking the day off.Â That allowed us to have ‘DATE DAY.’
What is ‘date day’ you ask?Â Well, it consisted of the wife waking up to find a vase full of flowers on the kitchen table with a card in front of it.Â Once she got the children off to school and I tried to sleep a little longer (since I would be on a short nap)…..I got up and got ready.Â Then we headed out for Lunch at a restaurant.Â Afterwards we went over to the movie theater to watch Deadpool.’
Now I will take a break on the description to point out the only weird thing about the movie…..this was during school hours but some teenage looking boy with a backpack came in and sat at the end of a row.Â I have always been aware of my surroundings….but since I was carrying my defense with me….I was not too nervous.Â Since you asked in this weeks questions if I would walk alone in Muncie & in Indianapolis…..I thought Id point out I was more concerned for a little while in the theater than I would have been walking around at night time.Â Nothing happened but the way I was raised….I was aware of the situation not appearing normal.â€
