Setting up more samples as there are not many weeks left before my final paper and work is up for assessment. I have containers in the fridge at Uni and at home with cultivated scoby waiting to be used in photo shoots, skintags, skin moulds, skinscapes, for stitching and, binding into books plus tattooing. I am confident that the samples at Uni are safe - as no one else appears to be using the fridge! - BUT - my samples at home - well - I think I need a sign that reads "Please do not eat or drink my Honours work" I found my daughter drinking the Kombucha tea on the weekend - not that it would hurt her - as it does taste like fizzy apple juice and is full of health benefits - BUT it is my UNI work!
Continuing to explore the landscapes – this time bubbles in the tea.
In ‘Teenage Riot: Representations of Adolescence in Contemporary Art’ (Artlink, vol. 21, no. 4), K P Hall wrote:
When contemplating images of childhood and particularly adolescence, we enter a complicated site of desire and longing, inextricably tied to the yearning for our own lost innocence—a kind of memorialising of the last steps on the path to adulthood. At the same time, our desire to protect children and preserve the wobbly sanctity of childhood ensures that there will always be a different kind of anxiety attached to looking at these images.
