Here are some sketches of ideas for using the muslin casts of boxes and images re ideas

I'm really excited because I'm going to be running a work shop at a NHT day centre asking clients to participate in the production process as a way of telling their stories and experiences of home. I am hoping that various people will produce a box to symbolise home for them - rather than numbers on the building bricks, it will be stiched floor plans of home. The muslin cast boxes will then collectively form an installation which I am hoping to exhibit in Watford.

Here are some images as I continue to try to develop new work as Artist-in-Residence with NHT and the council.

I'm trying to cast boxes using muslin instead of brown parcel paper. Have previously used muslin with plaster to form a home made modrock but the muslin looses all it's qualities. Here I am trying to retain the transluscent qualities of the muslin - which brown parcel paper (which I have frequently 'cast' with) does not have.

It's not photographing very well on my camera phone, but I'm actually really pleased with how it's working. There are a few problems to resolve... like sealing up the end which I have to leave open to take the box out etc.

first full day working with New Hope Trust

felt discouraged after today's work - but feel like it's never been more true that there can't be a victory without a battle - so i'm trying to master the discipline of taking on the battle rather....

quite hard, quite frustrating though -
