The Diverse Manners exhibition is going well – there’s still nearly a week to see it if you haven’t already visited it! Here is a photo of all the altered train tickets hanging there:
Interestingly, when viewed from a distance they look almost like rows of patchwork squares stitched together! The first time I took a photo I didn’t realise how dark it was and that the camera was still focussing and hadn’t yet taken the picture – it came out all blurry but still quite effective.
We had a ‘Meet the Artists’ afternoon a week ago and lots of people wanted to chat with me about the altered tickets and seemed fascinated by the way I had reused them (and by the sheer amount I had collected, I think!). It was lovely getting feedback because it often feels quite isolated working at home on them day after day.
I am carrying on with the project on Instagram and have joined in a challenge called the 100 day project which involves posting one a day on Instagram for 100 days. You can join in if you like, it can be anything – the whole thing is being coordinated via this website and if you search on Instagram for #the100dayproject you can see what everyone else is doing.
Here are my latest few tickets:
