I'm also working on another project, if you can believe that, where I'm to make a work for a show based on colour. I'm going to make a painting like I usually do, but this time it's going to be dictated by the answers that people give me to a particular question. The question is "What colour am I?". I'm thinking about auras, and synesthesia - how sound can be colour, or taste can be colour etc. I'm interested to know what colour I am - that is, what colour particular individuals associate me as a person with. I will then collate the results into what percentage of each colour I am, e.g 30% blue, 40% green and 30% yellow, or whatever, and paint a painting using roughly that amount of each colour. It will be a 'self portrait'. SO basically I need your help if you're into it, just comment on this post or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with what colour you think I am! Easy peasy!

|Relatively new collage stuff|
|A totally meta self portrait of sorts. I couldn't resist cutting out the picture of myself and using it for a work|

|Went to the Savers 50% off sale and bought this stuff. My expectations were low so I was pretty pleased!|
So that's been my life for the past few days. Hours are creeping by quickly under my nose and the week's already almost over. I begin install on the weekend and can't quite believe it. Winter's coming and this exact time last year I was in New York on the rooftop at the MET, navigating alone Tomás Saraceno's work 'Cloud City', catching my reflection occasionally and thinking about life 'n' love, and how amazing it is that you can travel half way across the world in a matter of hours - how easy it is to be physically far away from the bubble that is everything you've ever known, and yet still harbor an enormous amount of home.
Here is a picture I took of me in 'Cloud City' last May. I remember exactly how I felt and what I was thinking.
