Creative Freedom – making do can make it better

So it’s been 5 days of playing at Aspex Gallery and it’s been great, I guess the overwhelming feeling has been ‘creative freedom’. This sounds counterintuitive as we only have a pile of junk to work with to create new ideas and objects. I normally design & create functional objects which take time to develop and resolve, but this project has given me the freedom to explore other themes…

Only using the objects that have been collected is changing the nature of my work. I might want something else that isn’t there for an idea or assemblage and I have to use something similar to complete it. This has in some cases strengthened the original idea, so making do can really make it better and also make you think freer. (I never used that word something really is going wrong)
