Since I had no idea what to fill this blog with other than pictures I figured I would start a diary running up to my degree show.
Since me and two of my housemates are all on the same course we are all working flat out to prepare for our show in 3 weeks time.
I am exhibiting two dresses made from laser-cut text from paper. They began from a story by Jostien Gaarder called The Solitaire Mystery, all about stories weaving in and out of each other, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys something slightly unusual!
From this I was particularly caught by the slightly macabre phrase "I didn't know it was possible to drown in fairytales." I have been experimenting with laser-cutting text from paper and wrapping it around the body. I will post some pictures soon I promise!
I am halfway through making the final pieces but am finishing off my press packs (packs of images, samples and my CV to be sent to prospective employers or galleries). Writing letters to people you have never met is very peculiar. It's so formal! We are so used to writing emails and chatting online you forget how structured a letter really is. I'm sending my press packs out to several galleries and studio spaces, but who knows if I will ever hear anything?!
Last week we finally got given our spaces in the gallery space and I am right in the middle of the second floor. So my task is mainly to try and decide what type of floor I want to have...
Plain white MDF or reclaimed wood?
Still these letters wont write themselves, better get writing!
