Symposium in Germany coming up

Apr 28, 2010 | Drawing, Sculpture, Time

Not long now before I am off to Germany to take part in the biannual Symposium.I am frantic with preparing for this time and I will work in my current style of contradiction/enhancement of materials,hoping to create something with stone,this time a carving and include cloth in some way as well.

The place has a very beautiful park, I am positive that my piece will relate in some way with the surroundings.Having been there before I feel much more in the know of what is expected of me over there and that is a good thing.Last time I hardly prepared a thing this time round I am in some knowledge of the place and people and inspiration comes naturally.My preparations and thoughts I am tuning in german,as it helps me to get into the mood of being over there again
