The Workers

‘It’s not the product, but the process that is important’ how often does that sound like an apology? Four days hauling, sewing, drilling and tweaking for two days exhibition seems out of proportion. I’ve called us ‘the  workers’ because at times it felt like hard graft, but what endures are memories of ah-ha moments, how to use the space to best represent the work: an elegant tower of fish crates for the projector, a recycled rope cradle for the scallop listening station. The process was important; thank you (again) Sandy and thank you too Aidan.

It looks really good, the response has been great and it’s well worth the effort if you can make it here for the last day (tomorrow).OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
