Thanks for the email and link. It was great to see you too.
I have just written an email to you – I’ll type it up below, before I saw your message, about earlier.
Thanks again for earlier.
I don’t know how to write this down – I’ve just got home, and my work was in my bag all along.
I’m completely gutted, there was so much I wanted to talk to you about in it, that I have been working on over Easter, and didn’t say.
I’m sorry because I know how busy you are, and the time we had today felt so precious to me.
I’m going to take a copy of the documents and then put the original in the post to you – is it okay for me to do that? I don’t know if it will mean anything without me being able to explain it.
There are some notes on the website I’ve made – I wanted to document everything inside it – I wrote this on Sunday.
Here’s the link
The link to the main site is here, and the archive, which isn’t accessible through the homepage. The sketches I spoke about are on there, and a more developed version.
I’ve been thinking about the ideas we spoke about, about the archive as a document in time. One of the things that is important, and that I didn’t say, is about the moment, the time I spent collecting the visual material in the draft.
On Fridays, I always give myself an hour of ‘shiny’ in the library, just having fun and playing. That’s when I did this.
It’s one of the things I learned from speaking to you last year, one of the things you gave me – I wanted to tell you. I do it every week, and it’s the point at which nearly all my good ideas happen, and exciting projects and thoughts appear.
Also, I’ve made an edition(s) of prints. I had these with me today too. They are based on drawing ‘notes’ I took from a Bjork book. I like the idea that I can draw notes from books, like other people write them.
I made you a print, and wanted to give it to you. I will post that too.
I hope that none of this takes away from anything today.
I really enjoyed the meeting, it was incredibly profound and inspiring – as my conversations with you are always.
I have been considering the email that I sent to you last night, I wasn’t listening to myself, and it doesn’t feel right.
One of the things I’m learning with you, is about trusting the moment, my instinct. The right things always happen with you. If I didn’t find the work, and show it to you – there will be a good reason, even if I don’t know it (yet.)
I wrote an email to you when I left the meeting yesterday, and want to send it to you – I will copy it below. I went to the art gallery café to have a cup of tea, and process the meeting, and then I went to have a look at the research library at the Henry Moore Institute – which I think is completely brilliant.
The meetings we have are really important to me,
These are the tree sketches (that was going to read three – but I liked the error – I finished working on these last night, sitting near the trees outside my house.)
There are three sketches that were designed to be in progress, that I designed for myself, and then a longer one that was intended to be a more complete document.
I like the immediacy and rawness of the first three better, so am going to send you the links to those.
I’ll work more on this idea, and can develop it before we next meet.
Thanks again for today, it was a great meeting, I’ve left with loads of ideas, clear thinking, and some great and insightful questions and thoughts to consider.
Thank you for the clarity with the transfer situation too.
I will collect the information, and notes I have for my proposal as part of my sorting out, and the archives.
Have a great week,
- Also, here is a link to the Dryden Goodwin film that Red Bee co-funded
it’s a really interesting model for funding I think, I’ve not seen it before.

I've become a bit too aware of myself.
I hope you like it.
