Michelle's awesome Art adventure!!
In May 2019 I headed off to Germany to join the Takt Academy in Berlin with the assistance of a DLGSC Grant (Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industry). My residency started with a Global Branding Conference for a few days to talk with researchers about creativity and branding. Following this intensive program I attended a digital collage workshop over 3 nights with Marcos Morales.
This allowed me to develop my ideas about cyber borders and organise imagery.
I have been painting metaphors connected to security, privacy, and data collection. I have moved to Leipzig to get down to the creative stuff in a focused way. Paint, draw, then a bit more painting..
June - I worked in solace in Leipzig developing the initial ideas for the exhibition end of the month in Berlin
July - Travelled to Assisi in the Umbrian Region of Italy. Worked in residency using gouache drawing and painting.
