There hasn't been any news from the bog studio, because I'm doing an artist's commission for SPACE Media Arts in collaboration with the Pinhey Ward at St Clement's Psychiatric Hospital. I've taken my big rostrum to the ward and once a week I set it up in the corner of the dining room, amongst the peas that escaped from lunch. We have been animating using pen on glass, chalk on blackboard and photographs.
It's been really exciting to see the change in the drawing and animation over two months, and I've learnt a great deal from the group who have been brave enough to give it a go. I only wish we had a bit longer together.
