Studio Artist Residency 2015: Ashley James Brown

In summer 2015, we were joined by creative coder, technologist, sound artist and electronic musician Ashley James Brown as Studio Artist in Residence.

My Artist In Residence project has come to a close. #sniff

Asked this week what the best thing I made was during my time, I responded with a rather cringeworthy cheesy answer.. 'friendships'

Its rather true though. :-)

I started this residency really unsure of what it would involve. I was asked to unthink my usual process and free myself from the pressure of making in short timeframes and so I approached with a more experimental and open rigour than I am usually used to. I found the support, enthusiasm and encouragement from studio residents really inspiring and confidence instilling; rewarding in more ways than a blog post can reveal. I can say that I found myself more at home than I ever have before in a working environment, relaxed and happy to be myself and to give and recieve in euqal measure. Hopefully I have left an imprint on the residents as much as they have me.

I will miss the place, but although its the end of the residency, I feel like its the beginning of a new chapter for me, professionally and personally too.

I shall definately see you soon PMStudio.

Thank you.
