Footprints – a personal project

In July I carried out an informal art experiment to let go of my son’s shoes from the age of 2-8. The shoe collection had been held on to, photographed and used in drawings as an ongoing project throughout that time.

In the artist’s studio: recording experience, recording art

I have recently been working with artist and art psychotherapist Andy Ridley to begin the process of documenting, through photography, around thirty prolific years of making art. Andy’s work includes life drawing, painting, collage and three dimensional artworks. As a researcher I often work with archives and share Andy’s interest in making sense of the records that we keep as individuals and as a society.
