......its the experience of making something that has no real set plan of action, i planned for promotors to take lead on inviting artists and supplied the use of the space, visitors had been my open invitation, my art workshop and recordings practised slightly however as people created what they wanted in response to the environment and the event, i had no control over ....and why would i, i can't predict people's every action
....i guess I'm now making work from the external, which at times is a display of internal reflections and I'm developing something in an internal way and to perhaps create later an internal, overlapping experience ...... both objective & subjective & mysteriously magical
