So I know it’s been a while and I promised that I was working on a new project that was a development of Quotidian but I wanted to reassure you that this has occurred but I hit a wall head on and realised I needed to have some space from the project.
I would never have thought that you could be too close to your work but through delving into my emotions and what was transpiring was the real and new understanding of how you can be to close to your work when it is based around such strong raw emotions. I needed to take a step back to be able to have the film developed at a later date and the images explored with an artists critical eye rather than develop the film then and there and be looking at the images whilst in the eye of the storm and all the emotions raw and powerful. I am glad to say though that I am now at that stage where I can have the film developed and the images looked at critically. I now feel ever so slightly detached from the subject matter but fear that in developing the images and beginning to explore them that those emotions will be reignited.
HOWEVER there is only one way to find out and that is to develop the film and so tomorrow on Christmas Eve 2019 that is what I am going to do; mainly because I want to start 2020 off with a clean slate and not hold on to the rubbish of 2019 which includes the motivation behind this project but secondly because I now feel ready to view the images (whether that be on Christmas day to escape the joys of being stuck in the house surrounded by the same people all day or whether that be on the days leading up to 2020).
So keep your eyes peeled because this work will be being explored and displayed on here in the near future.
Also one more thing to look forward to before 2020 is that I am working with an incredible graphic designer on a more modern design for my logo!!!
