A New Beginning


Today I had my first tutorial with Gillian Wylde, there is so much information to share and getting to know each other.It felt good, because I felt understood

This is the transfer from my mind map, unfortunatly I haven’t found out yet how to copy and past the grapphic as well, oh well, on step at a time!!!

The Beauty ot the Act of Hand Making

I.      The way is the goal, not the destination

A.   Documenting through Still Photography

II.     Zen as a stepping point towards a visual sensibility

A.   The Stillness and Beauty in Japanese Craft

III.    Multi-sensory experience 

A.   Touch of wool, fabric and yarn

B.   Sound> interplay and response in dialogue

C.   Visual

in real time and documentation (Film, Photography)

IV.    sharing of the experience > collaborative and participation

Gillian seemed to understand my multi layered approach:

– working on a real-time piece of embroidery,which will become a “companion” through out the process,

– my wish for collaboration with others through working together with photography and video,

– incorporating interdisciplinary collaboration with musicians

– and a parallel approach which shows solitude and being with other people as in :

> being myself  the antagonist, the person who creates through the retreat in to embroidery a reflective space in a fast, hectic world

> and creating situation in which I wish to share this with other, stitching in a public space and inviting other to share to work and my space for a short moment in time.

Gillian will email me links to artists and events for my conceptual research, she suggestes Ann Hamilton, Tom van Holland, Roni Lee and the “Mending Conference”
