I often talk about waiting for the ‘click’. That moment when it suddenly becomes apparent that you’re on to something. I think today I realised, it already clicked. While talking about my progress in our group crit, it came to me that I actually have a lot going on at the moment. There are three things I’m working on right now, and I feel they’re all about to take off.
A lot of the work is a continuation of my process from last year, perhaps this is why I missed the ‘click’, because it had already been. I was very happy with my body of work last semester and I’m enthusiastic about where its going to lead me in 4th year.
I’ve returned to the workshop this week, oh how I’ve missed it. It seems strange thinking back to second year and how intimidated I was the first time I was handed a drill. Now, I could live in that place.
In keeping with my work on the obsessive recording and presenting of nostalgic objects, I’m working with old glasses. I’ve worn glasses for fifteen years now and have accumulated a collection. Having selected seven of these pairs I’m working on a construction that will allow the viewer to perceive an image through the lenses of the glasses I wore between the ages of six and twelve.
I hope to complete it this week. Fingers very crossed.
