Only February and already a painful year. I took a large sheet of paper and wrote every angry word I could think of over and over again. I poured all my frustrations onto that paper, then I poured water onto it and symbolically , at least, washed them away.
It might have ended there with a pale patterned sheet but the #areyoubookenough challenge set by Ink & Awl for February was HEAL so I picked some cheery colours of card and thread and stitched it into a quick book.
The cover is closed, it’s on the shelf, I hope not to revisit the feelings or re-ink any of the words. (edit – 2020!!!)
Work on the theme of Almanac for a photographic exhibition led to the creation of 36 darkroom silver gelatine prints of entirely man-made constellations.
Three books have been produced to accompany the exhibition. A catalogue pamphlet, a dos-a-dos zine (limited edition of 60) and and large format book (limited edition of 12) exploring how the seasons that used to inform and schedule human activities now in the Anthropocene era the seasons are effected by mans activities instead.
