I’m now behind with the installation.
I had to spend a couple of evenings instead making work for our fundraising event next week. It was just two A5 works but I decided to make miniature warships on both (which reference an installation I made based on the book ‘The Cruel Sea’) and they were really fiddly.
I also seemed to spend a lot of time writing emails these last few days…
One of the main things was that I wasn’t happy with the venue I was given for my work at the Threshold Festival. It was actually a great venue – light, bright, well visited etc… but I didn’t think it was suitable for what I was doing.
I wanted a low light and a place that didn’t have people traffic coming in from all directions (one of the major problems of working with paper)
So I was shown images of another venue – which I love! Its perfect. I’ll go to see it one night after work this week.
The other thing I like about this new venue is that I’ll be working alongside people who I’ve heard of , but haven’t met, so it’ll give me the opportunity to speak to them in person. Both are sound artists, which is something I’ve wanted to explore, but don’t know where to start with it.
Now I’m awake ridiculously early as I have too many things going on in my head so I can’t sleep. I’ve been sent two lots of interview questions for various publications and the answers in my head are just mush.
I’m also annoyed that a guy I was working with yesterday was sneezing and coughing all over the place and now I’m afraid I’ve caught something.
I really can’t afford to go sick this week :-(
