About the Artist RWB Journal

My work is informed by my personal faith, sense of vulnerability, bereavement, and, my personal experience.

My practice centres on addressing social justice issues of the human condition. I avoid making work of any individual person; so that neither, is the individual stigmatised, nor is the work unduly personalised.

Since January 2012 I have used this blog as part of my reflective journal.
Included in this journal is some of my documentation of my research; the underlined text provides links to web pages etc that have formed part of my research.
The Research Visits category includes some responses to gallery visits.

Video - Art Expriment: Dreaming of a Better World

Art Practice -Work In ProgressPosted by Richard Fri, May 25, 2012 09:49:51
It has been good spending the last couple of weeks working on this video, adding photos documenting paused TV/video/iplayer that had not previously been included; all such images appearing in strict chronological order in the work - creating interesting relationships and apparent narratives.

I also added a couple of further images of collections of found detritus and changed the placings of some of the previously including photographs of detritus to take account of the additional images of paused screens. All the photographs of collected detritus appear in chronological order according to the date of their collection - but the two time lines have deliberately not been precisely synchronised, but rather deliberately spaced to create aesthetic and narrative interest.

I then went on to crop all the paused images to be the same size [in postcard proportions] so that the contrast between the paused images and the photographs would be more consistent and definite. The audio then had to be further readjusted to take account of the new duration etc.

It was also good to build on the work I had done on the pamphlet to produce a 100 word synopsis of the work.
