It’s been a while…

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Well it has been a while since I last used the blog, admittedly.   I’m still keeping busy as ever but wasn’t sure how the blog fits into my practice (well still not sure).  With the over saturation of daily rhetorical snippets of information online, I don’t want the blog to be a self indulgent exercise.   So onwards and upwards, I’m going to have a go at discovering what value this blog has, despite having tons and tons of junk blogs in the back room area :)

 

Mermaid’s Hair?

Tape thrown over the beams

As I read through all the comments/notes I made based on conversations and reactions I witnessed at the residency space, ‘Where the House of Lines meets the House of Dreams’, I am fascinated by the children’s reaction to the space, during the closing down event. They refelcted on the space as ‘very funny’, a ‘special shop filled with wonderful things’ and asked me if I lived in the space! It’s fascinating that their reaction is almost opposite to that of adults. However, the adults that were present during the closing down event couldn’t help but be influenced by the children’s actions – which I can best descibe as completely transformational. changing the space again but within a matter of minutes! Zach commented that he ‘loved pulling the tape down’ and that is was his ‘best day ever!’. I am so pleased that families visited the closing down event; it seemed so fitting that those who already know me from my work at the Mead Gallery and Coventry Artspace, joined in the final act of closing down the space – something symbolic of my practice reflecting everything I do, as opposed to seperating practice from particpatory work.
This time based experience/action/re-action is something I will be investigating further.

Welcome to my website!  I decided on a blog based site that allows viewers to stay up to date with my most recent ideas and projects. I aim to keep the website fresh with images and updates.  Feel free to comment on my work, or get in touch via the Contact Me page.

The above image was taken in my studio.  The stencils are produced from everyday visual communications and then used as a tool to explore meaning and value within contemporary consumer culture. I find them interesting in their own right as symbolic objects which represent the notion of something being of value, whilst being disposable and throw away.
