  • PLAN

    My plan while there is to look and work around the subject matter of the fur industry paying attention to fox farming. All my work looks at the way humans interact with other animals but this will be the first time that I will be looking at our ‘non-edible’ consumption relationship to another species.

    My time there will be broken down into the three main fields. Research, Sculptural practice and illustration work. I will more than likely conduct a fair amount of research before I arrive, as this will give me more time for practical sculptural research and work production. My illustration work would be culminating in the production of a small book. I would also like to do some sort of activity that would involve other people from the community I imagine these would be workshops of some kind but it is hard to predict.

     
    Towards the end of my time there I would have and exhibition.

    I would focus on the production of sculpture work while at the centre and the creation of a show. I would still work on illustrations but these would more than likely not make it into a book form at this stage. Saying I could achieve much more than this in a month may be a bit to ambitious.

    From the ideas I have floating around in my head at the moment, I may either be doing a lot of casting or a lot of sowing work. So other than possibly the use of a sowing machine, there should be no super extravagant requirements needed.

     

    An individual's place in mass production and consumption, illustrations and installation.
