I am interested in how young people experience art, and approach projects with a focus on experimentation, play and process. Over the past number of months I have been exploring and questioning the impact of this practice of working, its legacy and the “marks” it might have left behind. I used this dust blanket while I worked in residence with Castlefinn Parent and Toddler group on the Being and Belonging project in 2012. For me it is a physical document of the activities we engaged with through this project. Covered in splashes of paint and particles of material, each mark represents a trace in our memories of a person, a process, a conversation or a significant moment within the project. This piece looks at what is left behind after a project is completed; it questions the impact of the experience, the processes and activities we engage with and asks what might happen next…….
