Language: “The voice came from an oblong metal plaque like a dulled mirror which formed part of the surface of the right-hand wall.” (2) “Day and night the telescreens bruised your ears with statistics proving that people today had more food, more clothes, better houses, better recreations... Not a word of it could be proved or disproved... It was like a single equation with two unknowns” (74) L(1) George Orwell, the author of 1984, uses figurative language within this quote with a perfectly crafted simile.
To grasp an understanding of the Southern States of America, that is something that Edward L. Ayers argues is hard to achieve :“when they speak of 'Southern culture ' they are creating a fiction, a fiction of a geographically bounded and coherent set of attributes to be set off against a mythical non-South. ”1 However, this does not mean that writers of the South can give us a greater understanding of the South.

The jumping off point for this project came when I was reflecting on and reviewing my works and practices to date, trying to locate the question of what it is I wish to express. My work thus far has been interrelated and my voice as an artist is imbued within the corporeal and the formal qualities of the materials. My research and practice lie within the human condition, from the somatic to the many varied psychological landscapes we experience. I explore the question of what it means to be human and our understanding of ‘place’ within the world. Maurice Merleau Ponty’s essay ‘Eye and Mind’ examines how art displays the act of viewing, extending from Martin Heidegger’s Being-in-the-world, ‘The Sense of Being’.
Pavlenko and Blackledge (2004) concentrate on five characteristics of identity which I see a valuable source to interpretation and analysis of my data, despite the fact that those researchers were not talking about educational settings. Those characteristics of identity link Poststructuralism and Social Constructionism in productive means. I will shortly discuss them. First of all, Pavlenko and Blackledge (2004) pick the Social Constructionist interpretation that “identity options are constructed, validated and offered through discourses available to individuals at a particular point in time and place” (2004:14).
