“Create an environment” he said

Category : sketch book one
Date : 12th October 2018

we where asked as a studio group to create an environment

our idea

record the crit before and play it back to them

we hid the speaker in the cealing in the corridor, asked them to wait outside our studio to get ready , as they waited in the corridor we played the last crit back to them.

I couldn’t have planned a better reaction, looking through the key hole we noticed after 5 mins they had all left , after running down to the studio they where all in and I said “ what the fuck you left before the end a bit disrespectful don’t you think” , they were pissed off . They initially said they where angry because we had recorded them without there permission, this doesn’t stand as we only played the recording back to esacltly the same people who had heard it earlier and they couldn’t assume that we would send it world wide because there would be no reason for that , secondary we worked out that because we left them in the corridor they felt we as a group where mocking them , this was never the intention , the only reason why they felt mocked was because they where embaressed about hearing them talk about their work . I feel like my tuoutor babbak set the tone , they all look up to him and if he felt like we where taking the piss they all incedently did also , that’s why they left early.

The people most pissed off where the people that spoke in the video

the two girls that spoke most left during the work not to be seen again after

My group started to essentially apologise for upsetting people .

We should not apologise for what the work became , they where the ones that set that environment, are intentions where never to mock more to think about critting a crit. They got upset cos they where Embarrassed about what they said

One girl said we where Nieave for not realising that the peice would do it

even if the purpose was to mock there is nothing worng with it , I’m surprised they aloud them self’s to feel mocked and let the peice be about them , they should step back and look at why they felt mocked and what does the peice day about that

not that I’m upset let’s leave

it made everyone think

everyone spoke about it afterwards

it was a brilliant peice

IT SUNK DEEPER WITH MOVEMENT

I INTENDED TO LEAVE TO GET HELP

I DIDNT LEAVE

I PULLED IT OUT THE MUSCLE

FINGERS FREE

I PULLED IT OUT THE SKIN

 

 


First fuck

Category : sketch book one
Date : 10th October 2018

From my big brain to pen to paper to inter web I have started

new peice is this

first piece of the year

im going to be doing it simultaneously working the the bullshit collaboration thing and minus Adam and Eve film also s collaboration

i don’t like collaboration

itss because I want to improve my work on my own like an egotistic arrogant hole of a Mann

the peice envolves me hurting myself in the name of art

health and safety are going to fuck me up the bum I shall avoid them for as long as possible hopefully I won’t have to make contact with the department of safety and the health

I need a 240 battery pack mirror board motor for the needle mechanism , I shall start with this

make two of those

then start the cross

amen

 


Turner prize

Category : sketch book one
Date : 8th October 2018

These are my two favourite works at the prizes

firstly my girlfriend was upset that all the works where video … I wasn’t I must make it easier to judge 4 video but that’s not the point I thought all where good works and they shouldn’t compromise even if they are all the same medium plus video is the most important medium right now , not the most ground breaking but the most important.

The one by one artist was good cos of the way he drew out the reel of film , film not so good but the reel wow it was superbly cool not very provocative but subtle in the way you wernt sure how practical it was to me it was the form

th second work was incredible in terms of just the mass of information and the process was tangible , I also admired the curation of it with its internet contemporary style , 3D rendering in combination with video was a perfect harmony and the subject very evocative and I loved how it pointed the finger away from the art and at something fucking important instead of just constantly implosding on what art is and what it means this way has become tediousness this peice for me was refreshing

 


The book

Category : sketch book one
Date : 8th October 2018

This project has been a fucking nightmare I have been constantly working against it constantly feeling obliged to write ideas in it when I don’t want to , despite the fact I still had lots of ideas ,because of the stigma attached to it I started writing in my notes again , then transferring them over to the book , anyway I’m over it now I have too many ideas to deal with anyway they are starting to tower aboveboard me on my desk , I’ve picked my first two peices for the year .

I made a case to lock it so no one could steal the ideas

I lost the key

I had to slide the case off the book

neither are art works they are both practical aspects of my practice period .
