For reasons too tedious to describe, we ( myself and JJ Ignatius Brennan) find ourselves making a large new joint work for Traditions Futuristes an exhibition that opens on the 14th June. The details are in the side panel. We will have had 3 weeks to design and make the work. Its always quite exciting when these things happen. One minute work is progressing at a leisurely pace on some distant project, and the next you are in hyperdrive frantically trying to meet a deadline for something you haven't really had any time to think about, at all. But, as I have said before, it is often in these circumstances that the ideas appear easily and with great clarity, which is what happened in this instance.
I don't want to say too much about what it is, at the moment, but it will be quite big, about 3 by 4 metres made of lime twigs, willow, wood and wire and is called Retroscope. The picture provides hints.
