I could sense mixed feelings last week.
Lots of wandering around, looking over shoulders and putting a brave face on. What are we doing?
It seems that there is a very fine line between what could be great and what could be awful. I’ve a feeling we wont know which side we’ve fallen until after we’ve finished.

People are playing, alone to begin with. It’s like watching toddlers who’ve never played together before.

We all kicked Mari’s bucket. It broke.

Today (20/02/2012) I did not go to the mill. But I did send some requests for Sam to carry out. So here is my work for the day (carried out by Sam):

About Jason Pinder

Jason Pinder's sculptural interventions and process-driven installations are concerned, primarily, with the physical act of doing and of making. Visually blunt and straightforward, Pinder works are clothed in an appearance of ‘it-is-what-it-is-ness’. Often requiring substantial amounts of base physical exertion, from sanding to stacking, the poetry in these pieces arises from the essential pointlessness of the labour that goes into them. Since graduating in Fine Art from Cardiff School of Art & Design in 2008, Pinder has exhibited across England and Wales. He is a founding member of the British Racing Green collective, a UK-wide organization comprising artists, writers, photgraphers and designers, dedicated to facilitating collaborative projects and events.

  1. How observant! That’s how I experienced the day too. Now suddenly the month we have available feels very short (over a week gone already) and the issues of distance seem amplified. Imagine if we were all in the same place and could pop in and out on a daily basis to work and contemplate, bump into each other, talk…

  2. Its having to make do and mend in terms of time/distance. None of us have unlimited time or budget. Our biggest advantage is that there is 10 of us!

  3. I have to say I quite like it.
    I think it’s the kind of thing that we lose when we leave art school.

    The language aspect is interesting. There’s a kind of clumsiness in our attempts to find a common language. Almost like we are all using broken versions of our individual vocabularies. I suppose that links back to my toddler analogy in a way. The outcome is quite funny really.

    Of course, we wont really have it nailed until we’ve had a few tantrums!
