Work in Progress - Quiddity

14/08/08 Findings

It was very strange. Having set myself a day to rediscover objects (and stuck to it!) I was left feeling quite disturbed. Uprooting items that have been tucked away for years left me with an uneasy feeling. This task became a mammoth (tidying my room) session, in a room that has not been used as a bedroom, by me, for years. Many items have devalued emotionally whilst others have gained emotional significance.

I am more and more interested with the origins of these objects. Where were they produced? How did I come to own them?

Made in China

Objects chosen to work from are the remnants of a relationship and a place, once visited, that exists only in my memory, both are only recalled from my perspective.

The work as a whole is restricted by the fact that all work is based upon objects that I will rediscover in my childhood bedroom on Thursday 14th August 2008.

Getting started again after a while pondering new ideas and looking for a starting point. It seems that the computer is an ever increasing 'studio' for my thoughts and ideas because I am able to access information easily and it only takes up virtual room...
