Susannah has returned!
O.k. so my blogging intentions have waned ever so slightly but I am now back on the straight and narrow! As a mature student I am finding it increasingly difficult to juggle all the things I have on the go but now, with the end of my academic year in sight, I am concentrating on this project started all those weeks ago with the seed of an idea. As you can see from the pictures, my 'carpenter' and I have been madly making my information points and last week we took them down to the site to see how they looked in the space. For those of you new or asking what these are about, let me explain. Our fantastic group exhibition 'Benchmark' will see 20 artists install site-specific art work into the Lower Gardens in Bournemouth for a 10 day exhibition. My piece will see me experimenting with documenting the activities that occur while I am there using traditional methods of writing and drawing and then leaving the evidence in these displays for the public to view and hopefully realise their importance in the space. Over the next week I will be trying out various methods of how I am going to achieve this and I will also be spending much more time on this blog in order to hopefully get some feedback from you all in the run-up to the exhibition therefore any comments will be most welcome!
