Shelf for used sandpaper and mug of tea. Jason is leaving for the day.



Sam is now writing 'Empty Vessel' onto blue ribbon and hanging them from a pipe on the ceiling. Sam is staying late tonight.

1 wall covered with royal blue ribbons.

Time

Things progress so slowly. The Volume space is less recognisable, the events, tasks, objects are taking control of the room. The Exhibition is more prominent now. The room is becoming more art. In a dusky kind of light from a single hanging bulb – that shady cellar kind of romanticism – there is an ever increasing strangeness. From police station archive room – to gallery project space – to Informer/Outsider.


Jason arrived this morning at 9:50
Sam arrived at 10:30 as he had to go to the bike shop.
Jason has started to sand the lectern. He is through the blue and the white paint but not yet through the first ply.
Sam is writing on and hanging ribbons.
The space is now lit by a single bulb in the centre of the space.

'Everything I build this week, if it is to be painted at all, should be blue' Jason Pinder.

This is the last post for today. Sam has nearly finished covering one wall with ribbons. Jason is waiting for paint to dry and ready to start sanding tomorrow.




Saw hanging from stud in front of wall of ribbons.



Broken drill bit stuck down with painted masking tape.

Sam on a chair, hanging blue ribbons.



Jason's 1340mm long shelf.



Blue lectern for sanding



View across Volume space. (Sam writing on ribbon at the far side)



Small Blue shelf, probably for used sandpaper.
A busy morning already. Jason has put up a new shelf and painted the top of the lecturn blue. The shelf has warped slightly.

Sam has put 4 more ribbons up.

The work starts to take on the room. Black and blue and bare wood. A divide between abstract concepts and functional aesthetics are starting to present themselves. Wood work and tools framed in ribbons and texts. A knife on the outer-wall looks a little sinister. The inner-wall starts to materialise.
