Just doing some more experiments with freezing stuff in ice. I've started off freezing a feather and thought it looked so nice at this stage I would do a few test photos. I will gradually add more water to completely freeze it, but may end up going back to this image. This is for a series I've been doing called Weapons of Hurt & Healing. I've had the ideas in my head for some time and done must of the 'hurt' images. As I came to do the 'healing' I could really only think of one image which was the feather, which represents, birds, nature and wildlife. Now I am a bit unsure about the title for the series, especially after my boyfriend asked "how can you have a weapon of healing?". In some ways I quite like the idea because the concept of a 'weapon' of healing sounds good. What do others think? Initially I was thinking I needed more 'healing' images for the series, but then I realised that you don't need several weapons of healing. Sometimes all it takes is one thing to heal you.
Now to the good news. I went to see Maria White at the Tate Library on Monday and she has bought my book '7 Signs of Absence' for their collection of Artists Books. I told her all about the project and she seemed quite intrigued that the whole project came about through a blog.
