Throughout the rehearsal process, visual artist and photographer, Glasshopper has been dipping in and out of the studio. He has captured some great moments – take a look at the gallery, and some of the previous posts…he has also caught some of the moments of discussion, confusion, thinking.
i love images that show the questions and problems that arise from any artistic practice…almost as much as the final images of the great, pristine results that follow – well maybe! the uncertainty, the trying of many ideas, is just as much a part of the making, and since this is a research project, and a research project that is looking at process and journey – what it is to be in the midst of something that is infinite…it seems appropriate for some of that process to be revealed.
…the moments of resting, thinking, taking a moment ‘out’ to re-find the ‘thing’…wondering, what next….
Amy, a friend and a dancer joined us for a few days of rehearsals in Brighton and at Jerwood Space in London. I have found her insight and observations accurate and revealing – it such a valuable resource to have pairs of trusted eyes in the studio. Here she is taking a look at one of the journey maps – I gave her one of the tasks that I had been working on with the others – to give her an experiential slice of the work and its process. She will be joining the project for the final two weeks of rehearsals.
