1st Draft - Day one in the Gallery
All the work we have is laid out on the walls to be seen together and nudged toward a dialogue with each other.
The audience where intrigued and ambivalent in equal measure at the show. Not a bad thing, as it meant we got some work done.
It was a case of slow, fast, slow, seeing the form of the magazine slowly take shape. The main issue is the layout, the relationship the work has with its neighbor and how the pages will be accessed. So the job shifts between curating and editing then back to curating, and then editing again. Slightly mind blowing. Also the approach has been to let the work slowly shift into place, rather than over engineering it at this stage.
