I am really interested in Hedwig Houben's approach to performance, and the way she interacts with sculptures in the space. She experiments in a lot of her work with blurring the line between the process and the finished piece, and this has been an aspect present in my own practice which I have been experimenting… Continue reading Hedwig Houben: Five Possible Lectures on Six Possibilities for a Sculpture (2012)
I have recently been inspired by Danielle Freakley's 'The Quote Generator', which is where Freakley used just quotes for three years. This made me think about the notion of originality, and whether there is any such thing as being purely original. Danielle Freakley 'The Quote Generator' Using just quotes/paraphrasing, is how I want to structure my publication… Continue reading Researching for a piece of Creative Writing.
Mark Leckey introduced his talk by saying “I’m having a crisis.” Although that must feel like torture for him, it actually comforted me in a strange way.

After becoming so interested in the process of making art rather than the final piece, and then becoming increasingly interested in performance as an art form, I stumbled across ‘The Happenings’. I cannot believe I had not come across this before, as it seems so perfect and apt to the work I am doing now.… Continue reading The Happenings
Although I found the sculptures I have done interesting, I’m not really sure of where to go from here. I also feel that the colour element of my work (although justified), doesn’t quite fit with what I am doing. The colour doesn’t have enough relevance or meaning at the moment. Therefore, I have decided to… Continue reading Researching for Inspiration: Pippa Eason and William Cobbing
As soon as Sion started his artist talk, he wanted us to do an audience participation meditation session. This was incredibly interesting to me, as it linked into my work really strongly. Sion guided us through the meditation and talked about how we were to become aware of our thoughts, but not to get involved… Continue reading Sion Jones
