I wish you could have seen Sue – poised, gentle – bending down on one knee to pick up windfalls.
Shaping up just a little bit like an autumn leaf or the robin singing on an adjacent branch?
Timothy Morton again:
‘What is a person? Are we people?
Art’s ambiguous, vague qualities will help us think things that remain difficult to put into words.’
‘Identity is a performance…instead of becoming optimal for their environments, living beings do just enough to look and quack like themselves.’

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!
Starting to add straw and raffia to the welded frame.
