Tiree in Your Words is the title of the mini-project I’m doing in collaboration with the otther Art and Social Practice student on Tiree, glass artist Frances Woodhead. There are various things we’re doing for the project which I’ll write about soon, but the gist is that we’re collecting words from everyone on Tiree who wants to participate, and next weekend we’ll hold a community event to create a display with the words we collect. This morning Frances emailed me about an artist whose work is in the 2013 Venice Bienniale, Matt Mullican. I hadn’t come across him before but found this video and there is so much to think about in his work.
This is inspiring us to create some artwork around our own words to be part of the Tiree in Your Words display.
