I can't stand the question, 'So what do you do?'. Firstly because I never quite know how to answer that, I am a trend spotter/ trend analyst/ speaker/ author/ artist/ socialmediaguy/ blogger/ stayathomedad (sometimes).
Secondly, I really don't like working. I really, really love creating work. This is some artist speak I picked up from my friends Rina and Angus, both great artists. They constantly refer to their art, and everyone else's as 'work', short for artwork I suppose.
Perhaps we should all stop working and create (art)work. The question then being what are you creating? Creating a physical product, creating the value chain, creating year end reports, creating a legal defense, creating art?
In short, stop working and make work.
The work above
I created a small installation over the weekend for Easter, four boxes placed on stacked crates. The participants (I can't stand the art term 'viewers'). Were invited to 'look inside' by a message projected onto the infinity curve.
The boxes contained from left to right, olive branches, thorns, raw bones and meat, and last an empty box painted black inside.
I am a flâneur, which basically means I spend a lot of time in coffee shops watching the world go by.
