Bit of time to reflect after Testing Time. Things that seemed to be working, things that were overlooked, wondering why and what to push forward with. These seemed to resonate well with the audience during the crits.
Although people were divided over the use of text. Is it making it too obvious, and can I trust my audience to figure out the messages without spelling it out for them?
People thought the book covers were beautiful, but a comment was made that perhaps I was romanticising the object. I am not sure if this is a bad thing or not. There is an element of nostalgia in the work, but I don't want it to look "twee"
Overall most people thought it was well curated, despite the Fine Art angle that there was too much on display. Do I have the confidence to display a single piece of work? And is this the right thing to do? Considering themes of archive, memory, collecting - would one piece be too minimal?
