I have previously worked as a counsellor and have been privileged to hear things which people could not tell even to those close to them and I wanted to find a way to bring this type of relationship into my art.
Participants were therefore asked to write on paper something which they had not told anyone before. They were them told to burn all of it . The paper and ash was then placed in the glass petri dishes.
Really personal thoughts and feelings are thereby transformed and presented as tangible and specimen like but still private and unknown.
We can look at each piece and wonder what was said. Even perhaps catch our own reflection in the dish
Perhaps we try and make out if any writing remains
Wonder what we might say if invited to take part.
If you would to add a secret to this project please get in touch.
