As we find ourselves at the eve before the hard work of all who have participated and contributed to Silent Cacophony unfolds I thought I would make a record of my headspace in the calm before the storm.
It is a special thing being part of a Platform-7 event, my first being the Catford Blockbusters Tapescape intervention. It’s always great to get to work with so many interesting people, friends old and new.
It has been a somewhat overwhelming experience on this event in particular, first of all seeing the readiness of so many talented artists wanting to get involved and putting forward very interesting work, seeing the overarching theme of perceived silence during times of conflict interpreted, expanded upon and pulled into a number of different angles.
Sculptures to poetry, musical performances to automated type writer I am truly blown away.
It has then been amazing to see so many venues and councils getting on board, going above and beyond to facilitate the many varied works.
I want to wish everyone best of luck tomorrow in their installations, exhibitions, interventions, performances and showings, I will be passing by as many pieces as I can tomorrow, savouring the experiences and trying to get some good photos.
I am now waiting in anticipation, taking a moment of personal silence before tomorrow.
Thank you all.
