outside the perimeter

thanks Sharon 
for drawing with us
joining in the fun
of being on
the go
outside
the perimeter
of a school of art
revisiting of old
your haunts
sharing river memories
of lochness monsters
of sharks

making new memorials
inclusive
of James’s #bodyplace
“memory of feet”
of toes squeezing mud
in the river flow

me noting
James floating
AndyJones word of partaken
mapped with Bluey
on his viking burial ground
drawn taped recycled
on his own personal
lilo
handmade
to take him into
the other world
with these words
flowing out of my head
fast
speeding past

did you know
my otherworldwords
have arrived
in a cyclical
coming home
i rejoiced
for they have
honoured me
with their residence

i dub today
my “dialogue Saturday”
yes Dave
i can
talk all day
i thank CAS
for this portal
to shout out my words
to be heard
or not
they shall be

 James Sharon Maija Andy
those I encountered
facetoface
on Wednesday this week
together with #insideoutside
virtual dialogue

 we have all played
in childlike fascination
although i call it
my natural
base state
watching
listening
sharing
feeling anew
on our station
#crosspollination

i am still trying
to understand
the disentire meaning
explained to me
in black with white
by Maija
by many

words
of who we meet
of who we are
are more explanatory
to me
alongside us
on our associate path
from here
i hear you
SaraMisselbrook
from over there

plus words with actions
SusanMerrick
floating on a lilo
on my carpark lines
of yellow over white
over the grit of grey
hidden under a puddle
for me to explore
another day

i digress
back to Sharon’s drawing
above
words in explanation
of how i feel
my ‘literal’
visual meaning
on show
I would rather
be in action
making drawing
talking sharing
noticing the words
which flow
in explanation
of each encounter
within without
inside outside
of our LIVE
dissenting
laboratory show

An Encounter

my first cross group encounter

Maija (M for short)
thank you for walking with me
whispering, breaking free for awhile
from your soapbox constraints
a self imposed 1.5×1.5 white void
in this confined space
can you let yourself be?

back to your verse M
it has stirred my midnight sleep
allowing me to leap about
with my words
tentatively flowing out

Intro: Unplanned Response

Participating Artists:

Karen Wood
Tina Sanchez
James Aldridge

We will focus on relationships with space and place, on encounters with each other and anyone else we meet. Where our on-site explorations and conversations inform events/work offsite, we will weave those in too.

What Will We Do?

Recent Posts

We will be drawing on the following values/ideas:

  • Opening up the focus on dissent, to explore creative dialogue as a way of sharing and representing multiple viewpoints across perceptual divides (e.g. inside/outside)
  • Space as potential
  • Infectiousness. The excitement that stems from experimentation and openness within the group radiating out to people we encounter.
  • Embodied ways of knowing
  • Sensory awareness vs disturbance/disruption
