Such Stuff at the Minories - setting the scene

2011_03_21_Sketchbook_sc001_blog.jpg

I've been working on the sets and the models for weeks now. This is an ambitious animation project for the time available. What is it with me and the deep end ? But I'm totally engaged with the process of making, I'm effectively drawing with wire.  As that unfolds I'm getting more and more excited about the storytelling possibilities that emerge as I go along.

I can't really talk about the work. If the work works, it speaks for itself. Either it does or it doesn’t, it’s not for me to say. I do want to talk about my motivations, what makes me care so much about this daft, uncertain job. I'm trying in different ways to work out where I am in all of this culture stuff, where I belong. It feels like I live and work in the tiny gap between the human-ness of objects and the object - ness of humans.

There's something so poignant to me about things that are like humans, even more so vice - versa.
