2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,800 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 30 trips to carry that many people.

“Sprung”

image

“Sprung”, was made at the old Kangol factory in Cleator in West Cumbria on Xmas Eve, 2014.
I found discarded foam strips lying on the factory floor and tightly coiled them and attached them with drawing pins onto a wooden board.I wanted to evoke connotations with old watch spring  mechanisms, tightly wound up and storing vast amounts of unreleased energy.
The site has recieved planning permission to build new homes and so it feels like a race against time to maximise my creative efforts at this location before the premises are levelled flat.
