"You have to play with reality as you play with a grid" Karel Martens
Perceiving reality through 'the grid'. Pursue a series of drawings/prints on graph paper
(What was my initial reason for using graph paper?)
Relevance of the grid:
-within the everyday
-organisation of space
-in other artist's work eg. Rachel Whiteread, John cage, karel Martens
-Grids, Rosalind krauss
-Rachel Whiteread drawings

Works from the print room on Thursday 5 November. Placing fabric on exposure unit directly. This was exposed at 30 units (the lowest you can go and still fix emulsion).
Next step directing the space: drawing connections between forms and highlighting the illusion of 3D space.

Too subtle to show an image - introducing texture to the digital image. One way in which to imbue it with the physicality and experience of touch that seems to be lost in digital processes.

Screen print- ways to bring in texture/ sculptural quality to prints – using multiple printmaking
processes for one print
take rubbings of paving stones/ other every day textured things/ wood grain and then print grids
over the top of them. Then take sections of the rubbing and incorporate this into a larger print
somehow . continually layered process.

Why do we feel the need to structure society/our daily lives in this way? To create a uniformity that doesn't allow for individualism, understanding or creativity.
Little boxes on the hillside,
What ideas am I thinking about here?
'Free forms' (nature)
imagined spaces: caves, alcoves, gaps - the landscape of Poland (photograph is from Ojcow National Park near Krakow) is my idealised landscape
Mapping: grids, structure, control
What is the next step?
Printing directly onto graph paper /
How else to create 'free forms' & ways in which to control them /
Getting into the 3D workshop - cutting up the plate, physically re-ordering the space
(As in 'Re-Constructed' but instead of cutting up print- cut up the plate - a sort of mono-printing perhaps?)

Present. Future. Past.
Future. Past. Present
Past + Future = Present
Without acknowledgement of the past the present could not exist.
Without an idea of the future the present could not exist.
The present is a collective idea of the past in a particular moment which projects an image of the future in its wake.
Our current idea is of a Utopian past; blind to the irony of the notion of 'Oh what a lovely war'; preoccupied with kantian notions of the sublime; desperate to return to 'nature'. This desperation is epitomised by the craze of 'the festival'; a retreat into nature serenaded by music, surrounded by craft, sleeping under the stars and drinking ambrosia. Yet these weekend escapes are underlined by capitalist ideals; people are sold the dream; mobile phone charging units are available at £5 an hour and people queue, slavish to their consumerist command for contact with 'the outside world'- the very world they purchased an expensive ticket to escape.
