I think I am worried that things are slotting into place - but a little too comfortably. I do not want to fall into the trap of resolving things in a way that is easy but ultimately doesn't resolve the deeper issues I want to work on. Perhaps it is the end of the MA looming that is pushing me to resolve things, and perhaps they don't need to be resolved just yet.
I have started to consider how the things I have been making might be displayed, this may have led to some of my confusion. In a recent tutorial it was suggested that I might archive objects in boxes or drawers like a collector. Appealing though this suggestion was it made me realise I was in danger of heading down a track I've been along before, familiar territory. When I think about the roots of my current practice I think I need to listen to my own thoughts a little deeper. what do I want to say/express? What is it about this practice that is so important to me? I need to take my time and explore multiple possibilities.
One of the major difficulties I have to work with is that I cannot provide the 'audience' with the real experience I have had. How can I translate an experience from outside the gallery space into something that can be read/understood within the gallery? Perhaps it is about offering a flavour, something to wet the appetite.
