Autumn attempted a steadier rhythm with the lungs of a Summer that had inhaled intensively. The membranes that confine our worlds expanded momentarily, reaching through the rust-coloured walls of our communal studio, allowing us short durations to be in physical space together. To catch up on conversations that paused in the Spring. To see the objects and materials of others without the barrier of a screen. Though we shared this expanse, only few were able to experience it, and when the membranes contracted for longer periods, the few followed the shrink back home, in line with the domestic limits of the majority.

Winter held Autumn’s breath. Our situations said “Sorry, we’ve run into an issue. Try again.”. And in this well-known recurring restraint, we did. Despite fresh anxieties, we began to understand the long haul of our isolation, our processes reshaped and shifted, and productivity came a little easier. Video calls once again were the sole source of connecting our little artist community. Online calendars weaving our virtual spaces together, then loosening so that we could make in semi-offline places. The online important when work manifested in favour of digital presentation.

We continue to alter in this staggered opening of everything, as Spring gasps to gain lost ground, as studios and workshops open again, and the hope of tangible experiences sans screens linger. Our work sits in multiple forms. It exists in a kind of superposition, as have we as artists. Connected in separation and synchronised in time.
