Above is a picture of my work space – a shifting island (from which I am currently writing this post) which might migrate to the wooden floor or up onto the sofa, the table nearer or further away, carrying drinks or water or other necessary provisions. The big round hedgehog – called Roly – was a Christmas present from D and acts as a prop for my back or chin. That book is my current Endless Read – Hello America by J.G. Ballard.
Why am I writing all of this? Because I want to hear about your spaces. The place in which you work, or have carved out a moment of peace for yourself, whether permanently or in the last three minutes or so. Personal spaces. Public spaces made personal. The spot behind a hedge where you look up at the sky, pretending to be out on a ciggie break. If it is summer where you are, the park where you lean against a tree, breathing in the warm air to replenish yourself. Indoors – your home office. Your worn and lovely kitchen table. The inside of your car. Wherever is yours, in whatever way you have claimed it.
I’m asking for photographs with descriptions, and hoping some of you might like to share. You can take them with whatever instrument you have to hand: your phone, with your advanced SLR camera, with your vintage polaroid and scan it in. Or draw your space, if that’s how you want to share it. For all who’d like to take part, please send your photo and description (if you’d prefer to keep it silent, that’s also good) to: wheresthebread[@]hotmail.com Any questions? Please get in touch.
All entries considered, and I hope to post them up a week from today. Please include links to your blog, and I will pop them in. Thank you!
