Sense Making

Writing about Buttons and Owl as a start to ‘Museums of Reflections’ I began to think about how I had done this before. In July 2013 I wrote a post on my blog ‘A series of new work which makes sense of everything…’ where I discussed and proposed a series of pieces of work.

I describe the idea as Seemingly disparate objects and experiences being juxtaposed to form interesting compositions and new meanings and I began this work with a post collating previous work of ‘Seemingly unrelated drawings’ and later ‘Paired drawings’.

The emphasis was on the imagery rather than the memories and narratives that are being documented here. But I was doing the same thing. My working process is now playing with telling the story first.
