Lab: Hayley Newman
Apart from enjoying the general soothing ambience of living in a boat on the river in the summer, my time on Eleanore will be spent reading, thinking, sketching and imagining two new connected works; a novel about economics and ecology and an artwork work for an exhibition titled ‘Field’. I have a hunch that I would like to understand more about soil, though given the context it may be just as possible that I look at water. Both are important components of any ecosystem. I hope that living on water will stir dreams of nature and help me nurture the fragile creative beginnings of these two new works.
