Sustainability project (2)

Finished the sustainability project at last.
My piece is a direct comment on sustainability in general.
Now I have to document the sustainable work practices I followed.
Using gloves and non toxic glues, eco aware disposal etc.

Greg Neville's exhibition

Went to see Greg's exhibition. The Dissolving Man.
A powerful and moving examination of masculinity and introspection. Displayed on three large screens were excepts from a wide range of movies. The images showed head shots of men considering, thinking, in their own worlds. The effect was engrossing and engaging.

Accompanying the 3 channel video was a display of photographs of action hero toys, distorted/posed so as to appear to me vulnerable rather than invincible.
These large prints were quite confronting - and again, very powerful.
So pleased to have gone to this
