‘Stayin Inside’, aimed to reconnect people across the UK through our shared experiences of continued lockdowns in response to the global pandemic. As we began 2021 in yet another strict lock-down, I felt a large sense of grief for the year that I could have had at Glasgow School of Art. Meeting my course mates face-to-face, sitting down to group tutorials with all our tutors, exploring the buildings facilities, and spending days in the Caseroom and printing to my heart’s content.
I decided on a postal project that used a booklet with questions and blank pages, to be sent out to peers, friends, and old tutors. From the responses I set to create work that focused on trusting the process of experimentation. Through this project, I felt a real sense of connection seeing the marks and illustrations made by the respondents, and it was a fulfilling experience.
I wish to continue this project through smaller postcards, which will be available to pick up at our physical degree showcase, at SaltSpace.
