New Expressions Weather Report: Preparing for Friday


We’ve been busy getting ready for the first practical session on Friday. The map now has a cover made with many of the sky photographs the group have taken over recent weeks….but take a look inside…..


Sections of the map have been opened up and the places we have visited can be untied and unfolded to create a visual narrative that describes moments from the project so far.

Images concertina out to overlap and connect. We took some photographs in the gallery on our first day and so several images of the eggs can be unfolded from Hawsewater, and these intertwine with images from Kendal, Orton Scar and Grasmere. Similar threads of imagery will unfold from Penrith and Carlise when activity begins there and a lovely feeling of creative connection across Cumbria will feel tangible! The map will provide an important moment at the beginning of every session. Maps are full of resonance and symbolic meaning, inviting exploration and recognition. Our map will help return us to previous experiences and locate us all in a moment of new activity.


Cloud collages have also been created which will form an important stimulus for creative activity.

And the square of fabric that covers the crown of the parasol has been used as a sample to look at how it takes paint and printing ink. Really looking forward to In the Moment on Friday!
