A reflective diary on setting up an art collective

I was hoping to keep this blog private but after experimenting with tumblr for a long time I have concluded the format simply does not work with the privacy settings on. So here it is, made public, a reflective diary style blog about setting up the SHEBANG collective. There is a lot of waffle and it is rather inward looking, I could have not told anyone it was out there, but as I am a fan of processes and transparency I have figured it may be of interest to someone.


Work from the archive

Building a new website has led me to sifting through all sorts of images from old projects and work I have made. It is quite interesting to look back 10 years and see what I was up to. There have been some very inspiring little one off projects along the way that get easily forgotten.

This is some work from a collaboration with Rachel Rosen in 2012 for an Arts and wildlife festival: ‘Have a blast’ at Gwaith Powdwr Nature reserve.

“A weekend explosion of art, performance, wildlife, music and activities set in this ex-gun powder factory in Penrhyndeudraeth”

The birds were cut from recycled tin cans, they were tangled and trapped in the fence and then escaping where the fence had been torn.
