One of the reasons I really wanted to do this residency (aside from the change of scene and studio visits) was to have time to reflect on how I work. This year I have been teaching 0.5 as well, so studio-going has gotten more difficult, but regardless, I have been in a weird pattern of doing very finite projects/commissions since early 2012. The well-dodgy diagram above tries to show how that kind of working mode ends up being a bit of a dead end; you’re going in a mostly straight line between different-shaped, but similarly-sized deadlines. Having deadlines and commissions is obviously a great thing (no complaints about having work!) but at what point does it stop being truly useful if it all sits on the same plateau? How to move things on and make a change? I’m off to go and research funding sources/pots of gold.
