(top) - twisted hazel branch,( bottom) spider
“Start with something organic!” said my tutor in Glasgow School of Art’s portfolio class.
I thought of that this morning when I photographed this spider, made during my second year at college, part of my first Public Art project (disastrous one as it turned out!).
My spider got short shift at Glasgow School of Art (“We are not having that here!” ) so my half-finished spider got relegated to my garden where it now lurks in the undergrowth.
Instead for my Public Art project I used electronic text and installed it in Borders Bookshop in Glasgow
Well, ten years later Borders no longer exists, my electronic text board has broken but my spider still lives in the garden.
Today I photographed it with a branch of a twisted hazel in the garden.
