With the awarding of an Arts Council of Wales National Lottery Stabilisation Fund grant and an Artists Bursary from a-n The Artists Information Company, I have been able to start moving forward with the development and re-development of my work with interactive audio and tapestry weaving.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and Covid-19 lock down the Arts and Audio Interactivity project development has had to put on hold. I am not concerned that it will not go ahead and indeed, I am excited about the changes that I will need to make to my own interactive tapestry weaving in order to allow for the potential nervousness of multiple people touching an art work.
I have had several exhibitions postponed for the same reason but these will be rescheduled for 2021 and dates will be advertised when confirmed.
The work for which I have received an a-n Artists Bursary award is going ahead but this too has had to be postponed, though for less time as this extra training in Python coding and use of Raspberry Pi and Arduino.
Further funding applications towards developing new work have also been postponed but, again, I hope I can proceed with these soon.
In the meantime, you can still see my existing work in audio interactive tapestry weaving on the Sound and Weave page.
Art and Audio Interactivity – a project I have developed to work with disabled artists with the purpose of identifying the best practical and engaging means of integrating interactivity through audio to different art works – in my own case, two and three dimensional tapestry weaving.
This blog will be my main means of documenting the progress of this project. It provides a link for funders and others interested in the project, to follow the developments of work produced by myself and the collaborating disabled artists.Continue reading
