Testing Times

I was fortunate in being offered workspace in a shed with the propagators, their end is all ‘neatness’, systems and order – I see instantly what it is I’d like the loan of. Mine consists of around 9 watery experiments in containers on a ‘long borrow’. Gardeners and Estate Workers occasionally pop in to see if I’m getting anywhere with attempts to create darkness; “I want shallowness without a hint of bottom” it’s brilliant how un-phased these visitors are by this technical ‘art-speak’ I employ.

Two larger experiments lurk on the grass outside; falling leaves should fade into the murk as they sink.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A propagator’s sieve is used to remove floating charcoal from a pool of sunken particles and debris. Momentarily I have the feeling of owning a basking shark’s sifting maw.
