Steve has got me thinking about the space inbetween.
He is thinking about the space inbetween research and art, which for me is very interesting.
When is an artist an academic?
I said here that I thought artists were fast academics.
What does that leave academics - slow artists?
I guess so.
More space inbetweens:
Between a wave coming out and going in,
between children playing on a beach.
ALso, when I researched in homes, the space inbetween parents and children was always the most interesting space, and often, mess was where it was most visible, as this was the fuzzy space where children played and adults tidied up.
Also next weekend I am doing a session (originally I did this with Dr Joolz)
on literacy and spatiality and am thinking about space.
This book is really good and has the amazing concept that literacy practices produce space.
PS great to be back and thinking again!
PPS Dr Joolz is also thinking about the space inbetween and here she is writing of the people in her photo:
To take a moment in their lives, irrespective of the busy road above them and the canal (unseen) in front. They are mid transition; between the boundaries; liminal. But in a way I see them as subversive as they are turning the space into a new space and saying that it is NOT just scrap land, they will not ignore it, they will transform it.
