Four Stacks

Had great fun this morning finishing our art hay stacks with the families help.
So far these stacks have gone mostly unnoticed, sometimes met with recognition to there pointless nature by some and recognised by a very few as interesting artful creations inspiring reflections on our farming heritage and physical relationship with ecology.

Making these stacks annually i have often wondered how they have been received by local and visiting passers by. This week i have great pleasure in announcing that i have been invited to put forward an art project proposal along similar sentiments to some one who has admired these stacks and wants my art in his garden. Dreams do come true, developing my land art for site other than my own is so exciting. i have spent so much time considering these kinds of projects on our small steading that now ask to consider someone else's large space i find ideas are pouring out of me.

Drum Birth

Deer man returns

Repairing this drum feels weird. So much i have visualised the deer i have seen and imagined being a deer through this drum it brings back a welling of deer empathy/sympathy inside me. Feel a poem coming on. Imagining the emotions of a deer give me indescribable feelings. Ancient, landscape, forage, water, territory, 4D smellavision, power, fear, flight, flat out exhaustion, starvation, confusion, never ending alert hearing, the taste of cud.

Planning a beach curation project this summer

Loving your work, especially the description of the effects of making such actions on kids and adults. Last week end my wife and i visited a beach i bought my camera with black and white film to see where to start this years summer project, (i want to make a wee book) using trash on the beach to make something. We cleared a beach a wee bay and used the found wood to make a never ending line, i will be experimenting in my dark room tinting or painting in this line in colour. Anyway what did strike me was the pleasure to be found in carrying out the action and the lovely playful and positive response it gave the passers by.
