Afraid of the dark...

The downside to a creative practice that is (currently) centering around projection installation is that you need the dark to make the work.
Now it's been a long time since I was truly afraid of the dark, but I've got to say, working alone at night in a big old creaky warehouse in a slightly dodgy area of town keeps me on my toes! Every creak, rattle, and shudder the old building makes makes me a little jumpy!

In the Ghetto...

For some reason or other, the song "In the Ghetto", (originally be Elvis - covered beautifully by Cartman on Southpark) has been the song of choice at our house for a while. Just one of those in-house memes. So when the Count came to visit my studio space for the first time, he thought it was very "ghetto". Now I'm singing it in my head in my Cartman voice...see below...

A Room of One's Own...

I have a studio space.
I think I need to write that again...I have a studio space. I'm still in shock. Pleasant shock. 
That's my little corner there (these photos were taken before I moved in, so none of that stuff is mine).
A Room of One's Own as it were. 
Now I just need to make stuff!
