Margin to margin workshops are getting closer. Series of women artists workshops start in Australia in the beginning of October. Long preparation process is coming to an end. As artists and researchers we have had numerous discussions about the workshop, organization and expectations as well as plan for the data collection. We’ll be processing and sharing our ideas online. I’m preparing and planning my installations and artist process with series of drafts from Sapporo (Japan), Santiago (Chile) and Upington (South Africa). My drafts are vanishing in time. They are not ready but just visualizing short moments in margins and juxtabosing moments in these different locations. For me, it is far more typical to co-design and collaborate while working with an artistic process than work alone. Drafting these series in challenging myself to come out more an artist than a facilitator.
