Monday 15th was a return to the studio after a weeks holiday. The nature of a break is that it causes something of a reassessment and provides only thinking time, there is no time to make anything. I thought a lot about ways to create the drawings in 3D, whether doing this made the VR space an exhibition, if I was spending too much time worrying about that and I should merely make the world simply?
I tried out an idea for the space as a maquette.
On Wednesday I had a visit from another artist who is going to show in the space with me on Tuesday next for the Doncaster Crawl. The first publicised event for the installation project. A good portion of the day was spent discussing options. I started an ‘inspiration’ corner to give any visitors an idea of what I was intending.
One board with some of my thinking and quotes from sources that have informed it – I need to work on some visuals for this.
On the whiteboard I put suggestions made by the ‘mentors’ and some questions raised by them and myself.
Afterwards I produced an addition to the maquettes.
Maybe the video gives a better idea of my thinking?
Friday was a day of tidying and organising for the ‘Crawl’. I cleared the gallery space,
Andrea Berry is showing some of her MA work and I’ll show the three ‘Snow Line’ works across the centre. Hopefully there will be some others in the space as well. I’ll use the upstairs to show the beginnings of ‘Geranium’.
Sketchbooks on one table
and drawings on the other
It will all be ready for 5pm on Tuesday.
