I’ve been super busy lately trying to get as much of the things I hoped to get done as possible. As much is never going to be everything. This project has grown and grown and I will have to accept that there will be many strands left loose that I will have to come back to at a later date. This is extremely exciting though, this project seems to be a toe dip in an ocean – what more could I ask for?!
As I ride the momentum, production seems to be steaming ahead. I have been drawing at almost every possible opportunity, trying to get as many artefact drawings, feature drawings, group drawings and graffiti drawings done as time will allow. The process is addictive, driven by a deep curiosity to bring these sites in to view, build the blocks together and make some sense of the things, circumstances, and clues that have arisen. The process is very much driven by a personal intrigue, I do feel that the stories of these spaces are revealing themselves to me as I go. I hope that at the end they will come through to others, though. Although this is quite a private encounter presently I want intensely for others to be able to access something meaningful from the data and from my findings.
As the exhibition draws nearer the practicalities of display and presentation are moving to the forefront of my consideration. What to show, how much to give and how people will physically come to it will make a big impact on so much. I’m trying not to to get too daunted by it though. As a research and development project I want to maintain a freedom to try out, risk a little, reconsider and ultimately learn from the experience.
