7 June 2008

The sun is shining and I have just taken my morning walk to the amphitheatre. I am a city girl (her indoors the human equivalent of the little white dog on the couch!) but it is impossible to be here and not consider making work which engages with the land. The land has already taken possession of me not I it in a real estate transaction. I am thinking about making works with origami shapes in pink paper which talk about my fragile and ephemeral presence as an outsider in this powerful place. Maybe i will scatter them like crumbs to find my way home or perhaps make little paper houses. After photographing the work I will take it home and maybe shred it.
