The Echoes Group met for the last time this year at the University History of Science Museum – the oldest purpose built museum in Europe (which probably means the world, it was the original site for what is now the Ashmolean) – to view at a private session the work they had contributed to the project (see above). Not al could make but those that did were impressed with the setting and the way that Helen had curated the pieces. It was a moving moment to see the work sublimated in this way and to see how precious they become once in a ‘gallery’ setting.
It was agreed that Fusion Arts would host an exhibition of the work, Helen will provide some of the prints that were made by the ‘users’ and I will make some prints of both the creators and of the ‘artwork they created – these will likely be combined with the Haiku pieces that were written as part of the process – some sixteen pieces in all – which will determine the number of photographic prints I will need to think about making, some thirty two, but the biggest concern is, as ever, the edit! The exhibition will likely transfer to the Artscape Gallery at the Warneford when it closes at Fusion.
I am wondering whether I could combine the calendar project with the first exhibition, in that the image editing I do might inform the edit for both…… something to think about.
