Hi AA2A folk, here's some advice on correcting the ordering in your 'Skills' & 'Influences' etc
So, if your list appears backwards, here's what should work (although it may vary in different browsers).Go into 'Edit'.... don't alter anything (even though they are in the reverse order) 'Save' again and they are then shown correctly.
This quirk is because in social networking sites, fields are often designed to show the most recent update first - but, obviously when you want a fixed order, this causes conflict.
The alternative to this would be separating the items with a hyphen instead of a comma e.g 'art - ceramics - design'.
Unfortunately the only thing we haven’t worked out is what to do if you get stuck with an unwanted capital letter!
Hope this helps
From over 200 snippets I have created several hands- the first 10 are in my second album. Each person spent a minute creating the snippet; I took 2 days to find the connections. I still have lots of material to work on/with/through as this residency unfolds.
As excited as I am to begin my time on AA2A I am lost in a sea of thought.
I cannot help but feel that I am becoming too obsessed with every little thing I see. What I need is focus, what I need is to wake up and be able to see clearly and not get distracted by everything else that controls my life at the moment.
I need freedom, a creative vent in which I can condense my ponderous thoughts and arrange them into maps. Maps... an idea played with over scattered thoughts and tattered paper.
It is only the beginning. Once pen touches paper and the serrated edge hits wood, everything will fall into place... hopefully.
If you want to put images in your blog rather than create an image album, here are a few tips.
Made my first collection today. Asked 200+ students and staff to draw a bit of their hand on a snippet of yellow paper. Now I have 200+ drawings spread over my floor and I'm trying to make connections.
And so it begins, my head is full of ideas, the university is full of exciting possibilities and my diary is full of inductions
I am feeling very inspired, I will be working in the same rooms that my granddad did for 35 years, from 1955 to 1990, then engineering now fashion
And next door, in the print room, the smell of which is wonderful, all oil-based ink and ideas, my fingers itch to get started
But the basics must be covered, plans must be made and lots of small steps must be taken before the real creative play can start
I am giving myself a gold star for not getting lost…so far
A new blog, a new space. I'm looking forward to new dialogue on old and new themes. In this residency, I'm collecting pointers: physical drawings and reflective thoughts about the issues we all face as creative practitioners. We could go in any direction.
Hi new AA2A artists, Its great to see that mugshots and profiles are already appearing in our first 24 hours of registration. If you need a little help with what to do next, have a look at our 8 minute video tutorial which we've made to take you through the basics of setting up your page, passwords, changing your settings etc http:/
We really hope you enjoy your AA2A scheme and are able to make the most of the opportunity and this networking website

five months on from the end of the residency and i've popped back to tweak the words that reside here. in those five months i have continued to progress and have continued to produce work. my plan is to leave this place for a while and continue along the path that became apparent during the residency.
i still find it difficult to write about my inner worldly thoughts as i want to make them actual before writing about them.
i'm considering space a lot recently. i have an idea for new work that leads on from the research acheived on the residency. the new work will benefit from the work done here.
i also have this experiment going on:
recently to the time of writing, i have realised that i am not athur pita, cannot be him and do not have his connections and as such have left myself the space to be me, to make what i want to and be happy in that pursuit.
i continue to walk in the warmth.
