I’ve spent the last few weeks concentrating on making a few simple pieces of furniture and working on building workbenches. I will be hold a business launch event on the 16th of May, details for the event are here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1606284696253463/
benches on benches: much workbench with two other benches in production— a chairmakers workbench on top of my bench and a shavehorse in the background.
Last weekend I was in Canberra for the You Are Here festival, I presented work at the third overnight event at Canberra Museum and Gallery. This year I did an initial proof of concept of something I’ve wanted to do for a while: extending participatory art making into sculptural work.
The process was built on the participatory drawing exercises: I massages and prodded participants faces and heads as they manipulated the clay bust in direct response to my input.
Hopefully I’ll have an opportunity to present this work in a more complete and sustained context soon, I’d love to do a developing series and display them as completed works.
A big thankyou to the seven people who participated in the project:

and the completed sculpture:
I’ve turned my exhibition thesis and a lot of the documentation from my masters project into a book! The Exhibition Thesis/Catalog will be available at my upcoming exhibition, I also plan to set up online sales for it soon, along with a free/by donation download of a PDF.
These are some test sketches I did using a 3D drawing program Reuben Ingall has been working on for me. It is currently in early stages and I’m hoping to develop it to a point where the output is three dimensional.
