a short month, so a short review ? we’ll find out shortly. with external projects in various stages of beginning and waiting to finish my main practice focus for the month has been to re-iterate my practice website.
informed by my on going experience at the derby silk mill museum of making, i came into february with the intention to place all in one place the nature of my multidiscipline practice. i’ve maintained my own site for several years and over the years have had a lot of different looking sites. this iteration talks much more neatly about my portfolio of interests both at work and in play.
at the beginning i had great ambition and i can admit now that what was on paper at times did seem unachievable, simply because there was so much to do.
i’m happy to report my small amounts of work done often strategy has got me to a point where the site is about 75% complete as i write today.
the hospital project i’m working on with the silk mill has had an interesting bonus feature appear. the arts organisation on site at the hospitals in derby is celebrating it’s 10th year anniversary and the arm at the london road community hospital have chosen the museum in miniature project to represent their work during this time. the exhibition will feature 10 objects with selected stories from the the wards visits before christmas. i’ve had a lot of joy working with assistant curator eilish to take photos of 8 of the objects for the exhibition. the feedback from eilish and chris at the museum has been over whelmingly positive.
(apologies for not being able to fully embed the tweet with timelapse experiment from the photo shoot.)
the third image related endeavour this month has been to prepare for my week as a featured blogger on the a-n instagram feed. i found the opportunity an interesting challenge and look forward to how the week unfolds.
