I have just realised that I am working for about $10 an hour! This is hilarious as you would get paid more cash in hand in a burger shop than that. Not that I’m complaining - after all 3 degrees and a lot of projects have brought me to this point. So, the point is that? Well - it’s art of course. It’s all for the love of art!
The projects are all galloping towards their completion in a completely insane way. I am currently surrounded by different types of glue, magnets, sticky tape, circuits and much electroluminescent cable. It’s really beautiful stuff though quite unforgiving. It won’t bend and won’t be superglued. So stage three is to recreate the circuits with thinner EL cable. It’s great stuff though not as bright + whiter in colour.
Photoshoot is this afternoon + tomorrow. The diabetes neckpiece is getting put together today by the engineers + will hopefully be functioning in time for the shoot. It will be great to get some really fabulous shots of this work - and even greater for it to be picked up by the courier next week to take to Sydney for the Object show.
The end is nigh -
