… a very good place to start.  I began by cleaning the space getting to know the corners, the shape, the colours and the fixtures. 

Finding the conversation between what I bring and what is already there. The question is about time and the relationship between two different sides of the brain – the left and the right. 

I realise that the joy is in not knowing the answer, being at this point of potential.  If I can sit with the question and not be in such a hurry to find its answer, then the arrival point is proceeded by a much more fruitful journey.  Once I have an answer, then the journey is over and I have missed a dozen other question that were hidden in the fabric of the question.

There is an urge to rush towards a completion, what is the motivation? 

So I use the walls and floor like a giant sketchbook!  Intuitively reacting to material and to the space.

The beginning

as i said yesterday, Aisling came in and she swept and washed the floor, a thorough preparation before she placed her table in the space…… she also did so much more and this is what i love about the residencies here in no. 72, throughout the rest of the day every time i passed through the space something new had happened, some text was placed in the window, rope appeared on the wall, fabric was draped on the floor and as the days go by the space will continue to change and evolve allowing us to witness, experience and engage with her working processes

aisling arrived this morning at 9.30 and proceeded to sweep and wash the floor!
