Thinking Outside the Box is represented in The Greestone Gallery in the Faculty of Art and Design at the University of Lincoln. The work was installed by a group of fine art students with Michael Lent and Andrew Bracey. The work is the same as was shown at the Bluecoat as part of Global Studio, but in a completely different layout that responded to student ideas.

Structure for the talk?

Hey everyone

Really great to see the questions coming through. It will give us something to talk about when we all meet up!

Regards the talk - yes, we should have some structure to it so it doesn't turn into a mess. i've invited a quite a few people - so if they all turn up we could have quite a big audience!

Any ideas for how to structure the talk?

Should we have someone chairing it? I didn't managed to contact anyone over reviewing it (partly short notice....A-n need a fair bit of notice to select a reviewer....and I've been dead busy) but I could try and contact someone who might want to join in the debate and chair it? maybe one of the reviewers you mentioned andrew?...someone from mancester who might be receptive to our concerns.

also, Sara the curator will be in the audience and ask some questions as well.

We'll obviously have lots to talk about, so we don't need to worry about that, it's just making sure it's kept on track. We should think about aims of the talk. what do we want to get out of it?

Sarah thought the issue of artists curating their own work (as opposed to just curators) was an interesting angle......

For me, it's about learning from other peoples approaches to making art. Sort of seeing if the issues I get wrapped up in and often get stuck with, are similar in other peoples practices, and therefore how do they deal with them....just an idea.


Question for Hamish

Sorry, a bit slow typing this up but I did tell you the question on the phone yesterday. So, for the benefit of everyone else my question is:

Does the place where you are from or where you live affect your artwork?

Question for Mr. Bracey

Andrew, I really enjoyed your work at the Halifax show, by the way. So I was thinking about your work, and it's sort of easier for me to talk about things like colour or material that come up in my own work. But one thing that I don't really consider often is scale. And I know you've worked with doing things on a really small scale. But I wonder about the decision making process, and in particular for the works you are making for this show. Are they a sort of direct reference to drawing on paper? And maybe you can talk about how the scale of items imposes (or doesn't) upon the space their in?

Question for Amelia

Does anything transcend language?
will say why i asked this on Monday.
i think we should talk about the talk event on Monday while installing, but we need some sort of rough structure of what we are to talk about i think or else the chances are it will be too messy.
really looking forward to seeing the work together

Question for Michael


Right, here goes. My question to you Michael is:

What draws you to working in moving image in comparison to still imagery?
