Things didnt quite go according to plan... the involvment of other groups,
outreach projects etc. but I decided to concentrate on the solo act of the
building of sandcastles.
19/02/10 Oh dear, the last message fell on stoney ground. But at long last I have a project in the making. From July until September I will be running SEALINE along the south east coast of England. In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the threat of invasion from Nazi Germany during WWII I will be building a wall of pillbox shaped sandcastles along the beach from Ramsgate to Portsmouth. Along this route I hope to connect with other artists / groups and collaborate in spin off projects in the various seaside towns I pass thorugh.
21/06/09 Back in business!! After a few months of not making any of my own art (too busy fabricating stuff for the likes of Richard Wilson, Anish Kapoor and The National Theatre) I have at last blown the dust off previous unfinished projects, given myself a good talking to and got back to it. With a bit of luck there will be new work appearing soon. Ive also been making banjos and cigarbox guitars and will have images of them online shortly too (i'm hoping to start an old timey jug / string band...if you can play the jug, washboard, kazoo, fiddle or any other outdated noise maker and are interested in joining let me know).
