Here are a few examples of my work which will be developed over the next 6 months:
This is the first week that I have started at Harrogate Art College as an Artist in residence, and I am really looking forward to start my projects. Hopefully I should have produced many screen printing practice examples by tomorrow!
I had a workshop induction today for this residency, this is a real one - not a pretend one. I’m back at Salford and although I graduated about 5 years ago it doesn’t feel like a step back at all. During my first stint there I built up a confidence in my work, I think, due to the luxury of resources free and available for you to use. The better and more extensive the facilities are the broader the possibilities in your ideas are.

So glad to be back in the textile workshop today! I have begun work on a new balaclava proto-type which I am excited to get people interacting with. I have recently questioned how I invite people to connect with each other and the prop without people feeling too uncomfortable.
I started creating a 'detatchable balaclava' which allows people to fasten themselves or become isolated from each other. Another day in the workshop tomorrow and I think it will be finished...
Drawing freehand with pencil on paper is clearly different to creating digital drawings from data in many ways, but what most interests me is the contrast that Tim Ingold describes in relation to line-making between 'the trace of a gesture' and 'an assembly of point-to-point connectors' (2007: 74-75). I've taken the opportunity to attend the college's life class to re-explore representational drawing with this contrast in mind.
