'Overthrows' is supported by Open Fund Creative Scotland. The project looks into how experience of touch and physical encounter is negotiated through different media. The funding will support the development of a series of sculptural objects, a new video work and physical performance. The project's mentor is Prof. Patricia Allmer.
March /April 2022
Spent last couple months designing and started making my soft sculptures for the future short film. Sewing is taking much longer than I anticipated and borrowed sewing machine broke down. I had to buy a new and heavy duty one so it can take volume of the work. Timeline had to get revised and adjusted.
First mentorship session with Prof. Patricia Allmer - inspiring and stimulating, lots of homework.
Full-scale production of soft sculptures in progress...
Soft sculptures continuation and planning for filming.
Making moulds for clay objects and learning how to do plaster molds and press and slip casting with James Rigler.
Filming. Working with cinematographer Nelisa Alcalde and martial art practitioners at Marcos Nardini Brazilian Jiu Jitsu club in Glasgow.
