We were doing so well, working in 3D, shaping the birdsong in the virtual space of the computer, doing things impossible in the ‘real’ world. Then a glitch, a crack opened up in the digital realm and … all lost! Back to square one. Back to the paper mockup I made earlier, something tangeable to hold on to whilst reconstructing the work in the 3D space of the computer. But looking at this paper construct brings to mind that this blog can function in a similar way; providing a backstop, a thought or image captured and made public, and through this act taking on a permanence not possible in the studio. Something to hold on to, and move forward from.
