A spell of mood instability followed by Christmas and then some fairly intensive writing (lit review, methodology, PhD application) has left me feeling a bit drained of creativity – at least on the making side.
I reviewed some of the photos I’d taken of ‘Florence’ in December, and wasn’t happy about pushing that particular aspect of the work further. Two themes have floated to the top which are actually interrelated. One is about being hidden, covered, inconspicuous – which can have both positive and negative connotations. The second is about layers – essentially back to my analytic roots, digging down through layers to find out more, but also at a much simpler level the different layers of self that we wear every day.
Finally to the Techne application process which has been very effective at blocking ongoing work.
