Wow, this year is hurtling to an end. I always feel like I did barely anything over a year, but perception and reality are strange things. I’m not sure how my year went, I only know what I did not achieve.
I did however have a comforting moment of putting some large new work on the walls of the old S1 Artspace before they moved. Sadly, only for a meeting with my supervisors and also I stepped in and showed the work to my students in my crit group when the student showing texted me concussed in hospital. The work is an ongoing pairing of theatre interior and text bios. The bios are sourced from 1930s cigarette cards or online web presences. The work represents the public viewing spaces of the showgirl and theorists connected to my research. The project will be ongoing throughout my PhD.
