featured blogger

as a member of the artists information company website, i make use of their blogging platform as a reflective and progress tracking tool.  they also keep an instagram feed on which they feature work and projects.  this week i’ve been their featured blogger.

i had sometime to put together the five images and i found it quite challenging.  by the friday post i think i’d relaxed into it and am pleased with the overall collection of images.

as with all things, if i did it again i would put into practice what i’ve learnt doing it for the first time.

here in reverse order (friday first) are my images from the a-n instagram feed.

Featured blogger from #an_artistsblogs this week, Andrew Martyn Sugars @andrewmartynsugars For the #Derby #Silkmill #Museum, Andrew has made an iteration of a non-linear film. Part of his process has been to document a model railway, part of the museum’s collection since the Festival of Britain in 1951. The railway is now being carefully boxed up in readiness for building work, which is taking place as the museum moves towards being fully open as the Museum of Making in 2019/20. @korsakowv #nonlinearfilm #artistfilm #artistcommission #artistderbyshire #visualartist #artistmaker contemporaryartist #contemporaryart #artistinresidence #volunteer #maker #korsakow #developer #DSMMoM #modelrailway #Festivalofbritain

Wednesday Featured blogger from #an_artistsblogs this week, Andrew Martyn Sugars @andrewmartynsugars One of the good things about 2016 for Andrew was his #artresidency at #DerbySilkMill, which he approached as if “hitting the ground running”. Here is an image is from the #bigbang #exhibition; the brief was to create something #playful and #engaging to #promote and start #conversations with visiting #schools. Andrew made an interactive, requiring three hands from participants, to switch on the screen and manipulate the three shapes that appeared. #artistderbyshire #visualartist #artistmaker contemporaryartist #contemporaryart #artistinresidence #interactiveart #generative #leapmotion #hand #control #response #arduino #isadoracore #circle #triangle #square #hitthegroundrunning #museum #participants
