Nora's first research trip, 16 - 20 October 2016, was a week long residency at Earl Street Creative Space in Hastings. This is a brand new space run by Jane Greenfield and Guy Dartnell. More details about the space here
It is a beautiful space and we were given a welcome invitation to do whatever we needed... which, as you can see, was a mixture of things. We talked a lot, laying bare our ideas and desires for our upcoming period of research. We wrote lists of questions, people, ideas, themes etc. and played around with very simple tasks in the space. It opened up an overwhelming number of possibilities so it was useful to have the luxury of such a calm space to allow us to enter the chaos of our thoughts.
