Jennifer’s Worry Doll seminar was really chill, it was made for our group and it worked well for our bunch of creatives who got stuck in pronto. Fascinated to see how much engagement the dolls get from the other students in the school of art, I think they looked amazing.
This week has been all about writing up the PDF and script for the presentation. Of course it did occur to me that might be the whole nature of being a contemporary artist… lots and lots of writing, form filling, presentation and the business of funds….
I had a lovely chat with Giuliana from the Eleanor Worthington prize and she hopes more students from Aberystwyth university will take part next year and asked would I be the prize ambassador so I will do my best on that. All forms of art are welcome not just film making and you don’t have to be a disabled student just talk about disability and inclusivity within your entry. The winner has a funded residency in Urbino Italy which is stunning.
The prize winner Rebecca Lee a Master’s student at York university also reached out to me and asked if I’d like to be part of an online artists group and get involved in a future digital art collaboration which sounds exciting.
I’ve explored more about holographic projection this week, even DIY lasers… don’t fancy the risk assessment on that one…. but it’s certainly one to watch out for in future check out this company’s work https://musion3d.co.uk
Loved curating the theoretical takeover, a change must come for art if humanity is to survive. No longer the preserve of White Male, White Cube, Gallery Man
Talking of survival I’ve had a visit from the cold and flu monster this week my first since 2020
I feel absolutely awful and I will be returning to my bed and Lemsip shortly… coughing and sneezing with a full abdominal clearance and double hernia is a very serious matter so wish me luck….
See you on Friday…. Hopefully…. I’ll be bringing my ping pong balls with me…..
