This week i have spent a lot of time looking at the artist Alberto Burri and drawing inspiration from his technique of layering your chosen medium to complete work on my tobacco project. This is going well and i am excited to finish before we go back to uni so i can display the work in an exhibition in the Cavendish Bar that i am part of along with the others that are in Creative Transit.

i have been putting in a lot of hours at the cube lately since we have been off, although now i am really tired. Today we had to remove a good part of the wood, metal and other materials from the site. My back hurts a lot! It was goof though because we have more time to be part of the work and the gallery as it is re-made into something else.

Saturday was really good, we where lucky with the weather and it became really busy as the day went on! I arrived at 9am to set up, but helped other people with there arraging as well. I had some really good feed back and my work was very well situated away from the main path but right next to a stall filled with plants so it looked like the little men where invading his stall! I really enjoyed myslef although i was very tired by the end of the day!
i have been really busy with my work for the green festival on Saturday, I'm really excited because my work is quite simple and fun. i am making little men made from rubbish that are going to attack the trees with little saws and axes. My work is based on how people are damaging our landscape by dropping litter, but as the festival will have a lot of children there, I've made mine as fun as i could. i have really enjoyed this project but i am really nervous also!
