If you were to prepare a still life using 5 objects that symbolize what was most important to you in your life so far what would they be?
How would you arrange these objects or metaphors?
Flowers bring colour and a need for light, they offer beauty, smell, seasonality etc. and evoke memories.
Would you photograph them, paint/draw them, make a model of them, just write prose/poetry about them – maybe I’ll draw something from the prose/poetry? The objects are few but the possibilities are up to you
The last sentence is the clue. I’m interested in you sending photograps or documents to me,(email@example.com) to see how they collectively emerge and what is evoked in me as an artist when I receive whatever you offer.
This idea is based on an original idea of Charles and Elizabeth Handy
