The dissertation is preoccupying me and taking me a way from making and experimenting. This feels uncomfortable as this is how I research and explore materiality. This morning I remind myself what core strategies are within my practice and refer back to the Manifesto I put together last year to keep me focused..........
I will always use organic materials to produce work
I will continue to be ethically responsible by using recycled and re-claimed materials in my practice.
I will endeavour to depict the fragility of life through my work
Concealed, hidden and unwanted matter & materials will be manipulated to redefine its aesthetic qualities
Making, exploring and doing will be my continued way of researching
The ‘haptic’ will drive my practice forward; the sense of touch through making
I will bring attention to the physical aspect of life through my creative practice
I will endeavour to communicate my work using the World Wide Web
