Earlier this year I fabricated some blank arcade machine-style cabinets for Now Play This as part of their installation for CUTE at Somerset House.

The exhibition runs until 14th April.

I recently finished work fabricating the Sound Lounge - a new community space and library at the Bristol Beacon.

Design was by Northover & Brown and the project was produced by Cathy Mager.

Had an excellent holiday in Siena, Italy.
Flew in to Pisa, stayed in Siena as a base and had day trips out to Florence and Monteriggioni.
Saw a lot of great architecture and art, ate a lot of nice food, drank a lot of good wine.
A beautiful part of the world.

I don’t know about you but I found the pandemic and the lockdowns to be a time of very little creativity.

Having all of that spare time was a boon for a lot of people - giving them the time to do all of those things they didn’t have time to do before. I, personally, found that the level of uncertainty: about jobs, income, the virus itself and how it was handled, just stopped me from being able to think about making any work.

The time has not been totally devoid of creativity.

I got a couple of projects over that period (Observatories and Guidepost, both for the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trust) but I was only able to do these because, as with most of my work, I was given a brief and a set of parameters.

I also spent a lot of time getting moderately more serious about making music. I’ve been writing and recording songs in various guises since the 90s, but it took the pandemic for me to actually take the time to write, record and put together a small collection of songs under the name Engine of Growth and actually release them into the wild. You can listen, and buy if you want, at Bandcamp.

Now we’ve emerged from the pandemic (even though it’s not entirely gone away) and places have opened up again, I feel it’s time to take stock of where I am. I’ve been applying for projects (as opportunities are starting to appear again), and I’ve given this website a little make-over. I’ve been thinking a lot about what kind of work I should make if I were setting projects for myself.

I feel like I need to get stuck back in to making things again.

Guidepost for The Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail

DiaryNews / Posted by Rich

I’ve designed a new sculptural structure to display the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail’s map and information panel.

In a change from my usual practice, it’s being fabricated by Faulds Creative Works.
