Project Description


DMLabs Residency

In September 2015, I was invited to take part in a week long residency, hosted at the Octopus studio at Barrow-in-Furness. The third in a series of artists residencies, I was one of 10 nominated artists invited to explore the theme of ‘Digital Outsider’.  With an intent to delve further into the digital, the week became an opportunity to freely explore some themes I rarely got chance to focus on whilst exploring my practice from a physical and mental distance. Placed in a secluded environment with a group of like minded artists with practices both similar and widely different from my own, was a great opportunity for reflection and play. There is a common feeling among ‘DMLabbers’ that those who experience will have a bond for life.

Whilst enjoying, exploring and making the post of the opportunity to reflect on the residency I was able to spend some time looking deeper into ‘flow’. Using some of my own and provided tech kit I began some initial experiments into tracking flow during making.

I am grateful to have met such and amazing group of Artists, many of whom I am sure I will meet and work with again in the future.
