Digital Artist Residency, 2018 by Alison O'Neill
During May I will be artist in residence at Digital Artist Residency.
Digital Artist Residency (DAR) is an online platform which provides a space for artists to develop ideas and display new artwork. The initiative aims to provide support for artwork created using digital processes, exploring the boundaries of art and technology.
I will be making new work and experimenting with ideas about digital spaces in a project titled "Imaginary Excursions in Digital Borderspaces". https://www.digitalartistresidency.org/
Residency in Dementia Care Home, 2018 by Ellen Bell
Eighth day of my residency at the Home and I continue to be fascinated by the interactions between residents.
What you doing, boy? booms a Swansea voice. A wee bird of a woman. I dunno, says the man picking his nose. Get yourself a chair, she orders. He sits. Found one? she asks. Yes, he says. Is it a CHAIR? she shouts.

Instagram residency/takeover March 2018
East Bristol Contemporary
An online residency exploring half ways and in-betweens, in relation to identity, location and borders. This was in response to a recent move which saw me relocating to Redbrook on the English Welsh border.
The work repeatedly built upon the concept of half ways and in-betweens throughout its production and presentation; daily images were posted at 24:00hrs, each image was a visual tableau between body and environment where my body was in an in between state. All images were taken in residence at my home, and presented on the internet - a in between platform.
All images were presented as part of an instagram takeover residency for East Bristol Contemporary.
