In The Space

Some of the photographs I've been working with for the upcoming artists in residence exhibition at Parks for SALA.

Arranging, re-arranging, trying something else, hmmm.... at the kitchen table.

Given the uncertain future of the Parks centre the AIR's are all reflecting on what the space at Parks means to us - our relation to it and what it means for us as artists to have a space.
We're looking at it as a kind of "work in progress" expose, too. You know, the whole "I'm In The Space right now" thing that goes on when you're mind is ensconced in dreaming up some new work? Hmmm... yeah.. what? Sorry, just thinking about something else...........

where i'm at

a snippet of one of the artefacts from experimenting for the waterhouse natural history prize.
bamboo prints - leaves and... stalks? what's the bamboo part called? anyway...
printed, chopped, reassembled. works in progress.

what can you origami? (is that really a verb?) answer : pretty much everything!
after folding little packets for seeds from the garden and creating envelopes with little boats for my son's birthday party invites, i got a bit hooked.
so now i'm seeing what i can fold to broochify (yes, it's a word. now.).
first stop, material. what next?

poor little sausage is home all week with chickenpox. he seems to be on the mend, though, as this gorgeous photo shows. gladdened my heart so thought i'd share.
