I have begun to get back into reading over the past week….When I say get back into reading, I have found lots of papers and started to organise what I had. I’ve found old papers I had printed and tried to work out what use they would be but now after doing a chapter plan it seems to be coming together.
I am trying to remember the best way to read and write up what I found out, but that stage is proving slightly difficult.
Having come down to London for work stuff I managed to visit the Tate Britain and the Rachel Whiteread exhibition. It was this and looking hard at a resin cast of a door that I had a moment of clarity. I sat on the floor and wrote a list of my objects and how the finished artefacts would become a container for memory. This will make up part of my object analysis when I get onto that. It was one of those things that suddenly became clear and I remembered why I was doing the project. It made me double check my decisions and in a few instances, re- design the ideas I’ve come up with. I need to do a few sketches again too. It has made me passionate about the making again as well, but I still find it hard as to how I am going to fit it all in…..
