Thinking….making

These are some of the ideas I have been thinking about recently:

Sensing place – the language of objects and how ‘things’ can express place. How the ageing and decomposition of a surface can suggest the patina of time and use….. how a surface creates a narrative.

Visualising sound – the common language between sight and sound: rhythm, tone, colour and line. What is the connection between  marks we see on a surface and marks we hear in time and space?

Memory – how do we hold memories of sight and sound?

 

I have got a couple of Sound Workshops coming up and I have been making some new samples for them. These stitched marks have come out of the mark-making workshop at Phoenix a couple of weeks ago. I have been connecting the rhythm of writing and drawing to the repetition and regularity of musical sound.
