Yesterday I went down to Armley Mills to help out on a project with Shari Baker. The project has been running for a few weeks already, but there's still enough time for us to create our characters. Basically the concept of the project is memories and that the head is a vessel for these memories. We create these heads from paper mache and create a character then we're making cases for them and filling the cases with found objects that relate to the character and their memories. Shari will be filming us and the characters and creating a group memory, she wants to explore how we remember things and how over time memories can become distorted.
My character seems to be an angry old man..........no idea why, just started to look that way. I'm looking forward to going to the next one and painting the head.
