Here I am hanging about with a friend I made in Greece. He seemed a bit sad every time someone walked past without noticing that he was trying to make them smile. We talked for a while when no one was around (he of course went into statue mode when others were passing by). I arranged to film him the following day, capturing his attempts to amuse observers. The film below sums it up though. You gotta work hard for the money. Most people walk past, unsure how to interact and then once every so often, someone edges forward. There's one more step toward tonight's dinner he thinks.
I'm exhibiting with Sarah-Jane Cook in August as part of the 7 Rooms event. Here's an example of some of her ceramics which I am totally loving right now. I met Sarah-Jane last year when I worked for her company Active Arts teaching art to youngsters. Coincidentally we had both booked tickets to fly to Greece in May that year. We eventually caught up afterwards and discussed the excellent ceramic work in Greece and how influential the trip was. I'm loving these little pieces that Sarah-Jane is making at the moment. Take a look at her website here : http://roustaboutart.wordpress.com/
