Making_Writing - Light Pricks - Plymouth Arts Centre Talk, 2017 (Contextualising Information)
Making_Writing contains two projects, Light Pricks: :whispers & kicks and SCULPTURE, MODELLING and POTTERY, produced between 2017 and 2019. Each project explores making, and the context of making, through a writing process that is proposed, itself, as a form of making, with multiple registers of language employed to produce ‘constructed’ texts. Both projects employ interviewing as a research method.
'Light Pricks: :whispers & kicks' was written for a publication/catalogue to accompany Clare Thornton’s exhibition Materials of Resistance, Plymouth Arts Centre, 01 December 2017 – 20 January 2018. Designed by City Edition Studio, with writing by Phil Owen, Emma Cocker, Heike Roms, and Natalie Raven.
