I am now going to give away the dresses only on the opening night, then leave some evidence of what occcured in the show cases I have use of. It then becomes much more a performative piece. At the end of the show I will make a gesture of clearing eveything out, removing the evidence, wiping the disk, and leaving no trace.
Some stuff has been put into my store room today - not a lot, mainly branches and scrap paper! But it's fine. There will be more I am sure. Checking the skip each day too. I am not aiming to make a 'piece' of work with it, but to create my space, my environment, for the giveaway.
Have started making labels for the dresses.
I will also have t-shirts done by a student a long time ago - I know she won't mind, and anyway - its about 5 years ago and I have tried to trace her with no luck.
So there will be something for the boys and girls who aren't into dresses.
Still need a mirror....

Spent the evening Indigo dyeing in preparation for a workshop. Not done it for ages. really enjoyed myself! Also tried some green sage leaves. Looks good, but have left overnight so results tomorrow. Note to self - spend the summer building up a good range of natural dye samples.
Tomorrow is E-day - the start of my work for the exhibition. The BA shows come down, and I start to collect their remains to make something. My show is to be titled Fripperie - always loved the term since I first heard the lovely Georgia Volpe refer to it in Quebec.
'Tis very exciting and liberating - having no firm plan or idea what I am going to do, other than give away some great clothes. I will try to keep up my documentation on here.
