I would like to begin by thanking Artslant, the jurors and everyone involved for such an amazing opportunity! I made some great friends and learned both valuable life and career lessons. Thank you very much for the lovely apartment and for believing in me as an artist and my work.
It has been 10 days since my return from Paris and I miss the cobblestone streets, the seine and the great weather. Montreal is super cold but spring is around the corner and only eleven days away! Ha! *Wishful thinking*
My residency project went really well! I made all my deadlines and I got some great feedback. The piece is done but now its just come down to a couple of aesthetic choices before i publish it on the world wide web.I finally decided that I will put it on Youtube and I think it will be the ultimate critique. Critique is such an important part of the process and I don't think any other work is more suited for this experiment than this piece. But I want it to be just right for posting, so I have decided to take a break until after my Toronto performance and revisit it. I will then make some minor changes and then post it on the blog. my website and Youtube by April 7, 2014. It will be nice to take that break and revisit the piece with a fresh perspective.
I am currently in search of a computer programmer to tell me the best way to post it on Youtube. The best key terms to use and how I can also change my google name so that my full name doesn't appear on the page. I will also connect a link to my twitter so that people can tweet me their thoughts. If you are interested in adding me to twitter my name is: Elehrah.
So as a teaser, I have posted a few images to the blog. You will find them below and they can be considered documentation of the video; demonstrating the progession of the piece.
If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear it or if you know of any computer savy individuals that you can put me in contact with. I would love that as well!
Please don't be strangers in my life and I hope we cross paths again. If you are ever Montreal, I would love to meet you for a coffee or dinner!! Keep in touch!!
