Here's a preview of a project I'm participating in: #Bagsie is a series of self portraits by 10 different creatives, all made using a brown bag worn over our heads. My self portrait is made up of lots of items I’ve kept and never really done anything with. I hoard items, y’see, and battle with throwing things away, stashing random toys and everyday items under the bed, around the desk, in cupboards, corners and bags. Any surface is a storage area. To steal a word off of my hero Philip K Dick, it is the kipple that grows around me - and this is me trying to get rid of some of it!
The artists were photographed wearing their creations by Jonathan Knowles, and the project was organised by Jenny Theolin of Soapbox & Sons, & Emma Taylor of Creative Advice Network. These are a few snaps of the day, (thanks to Jenny!) but the project will culminate in a series of photographs of each participant - can't wait to see the finished result! Watch this space!
