Graphical Elements

part of the narrative itself

Idea 1

The story follows a man through his daily life as he begins to questions his reality. He suspects something is wrong as surreal events, such as graphical elements consuming objects all around him, bring forth this suspicion. The story culminates with the realisation that there is no escaping this supposedly malevolent occurrence. Possible open/ambiguous ending.

Idea 3

A man documents, in his journal, his last words and final thoughts before we assume he will die or be killed. His narration as he writes has an air or panic, as he awaits death. He chronicles surreal events which have happened to him throughout his life, events like people vanishing in thin air, object disappearing and reappearing, déjà vu - events which he cannot explain caused by something unknown. He explains how he tracked down the source of these mysterious occurrences only to later regret it. The story climaxes with the pen he is writing with, the paper he is writing on and his trembling hand disintegrating and turning into dust.
