Stop Press!

July 3, 2008

Well, it’s been an exciting week involving lots of organizing!

My main focus has been: Initial press for the project, documentation of the project over the next 12 months and finalizing my Project Management timeline.

My first press has been published online in the July 2008 edition of On Cue, Artisan’s monthly e-bulletin. Artisan‘s mission is to promote and grow the design and hand crafted product sector in Queensland through creative partnerships with designers, the corporate sector, government, tertiary institutions and the broader community to create new markets and audiences enabling a self-sustaining creative sector.

The highly awarded Troy Hansen will be documenting my project. Troy is extremely talented in portrait photography and documentation and a really nice guy! We met last Friday to discuss initial publicity shots for media, documentation of significant milestones during the project right through to the exhibition at Artisan in 2009.

I have been working in Excel a lot this week to create a souped-up Project Management timeline to ensure I hit my goals with maximum force over the next 12 months. It’s full-steam ahead now!

I can’t wait to have some designs to show you, but in the interim, check out Craft Victoria’s online archive Craft Culture for Kaye Ashton’s opening speech at my 2002 show Acid Weave, which has become a springboard into the work in Making Place: Wallpaper & Textiles. The exhibition was the culmination of two years Masters’ work at Monash University, Melbourne and features 12 digital prints on paper which reference textiles (see print details from the Textile Samples series below).

Kaye Ashton is the Manager of the RMIT Design Archives, RMIT Design Archives, RMIT University, Melbourne.
