we are nowhere and it is now.

I organised an exhibition entitled "We Are Nowhere and it is Now" at the Walcot Chapel in Bath. It is a beautiful space and full of light. Here is a photo of the piece that I did. They had two fireplaces so thought I would do a piece that could incorporate and work with the space.

Here I have done origami fortune tellers (previous) and dipped them in wax so when they light shines through they appear transparent.
The idea behind the work is looking how light travels through different densities.

I will write up a full report with more photos and info of the wonderful people involved.

volunteer's dilemma

Is considered the hardest word to translate and also the most succinct.

From the Yaghan language of Tierra del Feugo it means:

"a look shared by two people, each wishing that the other will initiate something that they both desire but that neither wants to start.”
