Creative Journeys - Harris Museum & Art Gallery

This animation was produced by participants working with Chanje Kunda and myself.

Focusing on the architectural pillars of the Harris museum we matched the visual imagery of the columns with metaphorical poetry resulting in this short animation at the end of a packed three hours.

Thanks to all who took part.

New works - Application (dot-to-dot 1)

An idea:
Can I get the public to complete a dot-to-dot, where the marks they make reflect the movement of a person completing a repetitive task?

This is an idea that I am currently mulling over, with questions over whose movements?, what are they doing? will this dot-to-dot idea work. So, with a deadline for the Halton Open exhibition looming I decided to experiment with the idea.

The subject matter? - Me filling out the application form for said Open exhibition.
The result, a hand -numbered series of 100 photocopies featuring a dot-to-dot exercise.

Download your own un-editioned copy here, or pick up a hand numbered limited edition version at the Brindley Gallery during the Halton Open 28th May - 2 July

Brighton Open 7 May 2011

Following her participation in the Light Bite exhibition in Nottingham in Februrary, Claire has had 3 works included in the Brighton Open magnet exhibition. Organised by artist Alban Low, artworks are printed onto magnets, for the public to collect on specified dates.

The Brighton Open took place on 7th May 2011 and looks to have been a great success, with one collector commenting on the work of Claire Weetman;

"It's so interesting. Initially it drew mt attention because it reminded me of M C Escher, its curious - 1st thought it was dancers then rush hour people! Lots to grab attention."
