I have recently just spent a week in the south of France with some lovely people from Cardiff Met.
We undertook a project to create a piece of ceramics which was not only to be our funerary urn but also a pinhole camera as well as an interactive object which would come to life by activating a smart device app. A lot of work for a week!
I choose to spend the rest of eternity inside my own head; which is as unnerving as it sounds. The eyes were utilised to capture stereoscopic images and the app would activate videos of me eating and listening (yes, a video of my ear) which were juxtaposed over the mouth and ears when the camera was held up to the urn.

Bonne nuit à tous.

Fragile! In Transit is the initial project of the Project Network 3 (three) collective, a group of 9 ceramic artists from across Europe. Throughout the course of one year, the artists are sending 9 pieces of work on a journey by post to each of their home countries.
Fragile! In Transit engages with and responds directly to the notion of place, identity and culture. All the work is designed to fit into a prescribed box of similar format. and together forms an exhibition centering on the balance between reality, fiction and perception of place.
Watch the adventure of the 9 boxes progress on the website:
