Aller Farmhouse Day Five

Today I made the decision to make the most of the frame and make life a little bit difficult for the viewer to enter the space.

I am starting to block off areas within the space and make some areas denser than others so you have to bend down into some bits to get through the entrance.

I am currently feeling that the walls are caving in around me which is also the effect I want to achieve within it.

Depressing end to the day however as the rain started to pour down! I am proud of myself though, I put my waterproofs on and persisted. I have no pictures of this however because I did not want a broken nikon which is my pride and joy!

About leah hislop

I am a site specific artist who lives in Taunton. My most recent work concentrates on building large intricate webs out of wool in a space.  Though there is some rough plan to what I will create. I never know how the work will look like because it is made on site and the work often takes the shape of the environment/space it fills. By using my own intuition and working within the space, I feel each work is a unique piece and also has a sense of connection to the place it has been created in. The subject matter of my work explores the boundaries (both physically and physiologically) that we as a society put between ourselves and the world. They also represent for me personally my need to find a sense of place within the world.
