Book on the Fritz #02

I've been invited to be part of this in a couple of weeks....thinking about self publishing and editioned work.
And Time vs Process. Time = Process. Need to play and produce within the limitations of both. I've got just over a week. And some plasticine.

Book on the Fritz
“The very idea of collecting, exhibiting and distributing self-published work really makes us happy! Book on the Fritz is an exhibition format dealing with self-publishing in all different shapes and variations. We started the project because we wanted to create an output for self-published projects coming from people whose work we find interesting.

Considering the event itself to be a kind of periodical, one of our aims is to organize it as many times as we can with as many different participants as achievable. In the end Book on the Fritz is a social gathering where we can all meet up.”

Northern Skies

Was asked to create some artwork for an album by Natalie Gardiner recently.
Spent some time playing around like this. More of which to come later.

Final design. Northern Skies, 2-colour screen print, limited edition. Loved a day in the print room. Need to go back there soon.



I created this interactive installation for the event Does it fit? at Norrköpings Konstmuseum in Sweden.
With Make_Shape I wanted to encourage the public to test and try these objects on their body; some shapes were more obvious in how they could be applied than others.

It was interesting to see how people reacted to the idea and also how, in many cases, they approached something made in wood or papier-mâché as they might a dress or a necklace - did it suit them/their personality etc. There was a definite desire to create 'a look'.

I was much more into how these shapes could abstract, confine or manipulate the body and limbs. To overtake and dictate some kind of stance or posture. Boys seemed to like to become make shift superheroes.

I also like the idea of documenting the permutations of any given combination. And creating some sort of object/sculpture/background/foreground/body/clothing combo.

The installation itself was ever changing with shapes being worn and then placed in new positions constantly.
Will re-visit all of this again soon.
