In James’ seminar we spoke a lot about posting art works to others and adding to them which i found very interesting. Once the seminar had finished, I was paired up with Angie, where we both exchanged addresses and posted 10 questions to eachother.
The aim of these questions was to get us thinking about artwork, to use the questions as inspiration to create work and send it back to our partner. The question that stood out to me in the questions she had written for me was, ‘If money were no object, what would you do tomorrow?’
Since last year, I have been very passionate about travelling and the only thing stopping me from travelling full time has been money (and university). In response to Angie’s question, if money were no object, I would immediately buy a plane ticket to India and go backpacking for a month, from there I would go to Thailand and stay there another month. After that, I have no plans. I would go wherever I felt like going at that point in time.
To show this, I am posting Angie my backpack (to represent backpacking) with a passport and flight tickets that I made from paper, paint and ink.
I also included a bag of Brazillian sweets for Angie to enjoy to represent my travells to South Amrica but also to say thankyou for the biscuits she had sent me in her response to my questions. – I will talk about this in another blog post along with my response to the work she sent me.
