I really believe that the week spent with other artists has made me look at my creative practice in a much more holistic way. I search for a greater involvement and understanding of my subject and have definitely become more I committed to validating to myself what I am making. The themes of location, time and memory have become increasingly important in my current practice, as has the use of text and found archival imagery.
I would love to do this all again with the same group of people, but in a clearer and less cluttered environment. Perhaps in a historic building or disused factory where I could respond specifically to my surroundings. Perhaps to collaborate with one or two of the other artists to see what several creative minds working together would produce. I would like to work more with materials and have discussion reserved to specific and seperate times of the day.
Many ideas to discuss and play around with.
