Flowcreate began in May 2011. It is an enquiry into the process of developing ideas. It does not work toward a final piece or performance but rather concentrates on the creative process itself, informed by debate and practice from the field of ceramics, film, philosophy and literature. This negotiation forms the basic content of the site, incorporating film, stills, audio ‘in conversation’ and ceramics. It is an approach that gives rise to a multiplicity of potential outcomes as the project unfolds.
It is interesting to consider what the potential benefits are of moving between two or more disciplines. Obviously each discrete discipline has certain characteristics – material values, processes, audience, market – properties that make it particular. But within the creative arts in general there are also overlaps – the basic premise of all art-form is to make tangible or give form to human experiences. Now this premise in itself creates a rich vantage point from which to begin a project.
The interaction between ceramics, drawing and film will be used to establish correspondence between multiple perspectives in order to create spaces, creative spaces in which the activity of our perception can be explored and conveyed.
