It’s been a busy time since the residency finished. Time to reflect, evaluate, (set up an Instagram page), take space and try to connect with a sense of stillness. The internal sound still permeates every waking moment. My understanding of Tinnitus shifts and morphs as does the experience of living with the condition on a daily basis … and Tinnitus has a friend – Hyperacusis – the relationship between the two is an interesting one … equilibrium and equanimity are challenged, I continue to learn the stuff that makes up the experience of me ….

Catching up with myself … organising … reflecting … planning … week 7 has already begun, week 6 was demanding, the days wanted more from me than I had, more than there was … the hiss gets louder … don’t listen … tune out … it plays in the background …

I can’t believe I’m in week five of the residency, time is running so fast … where am I ! I’m dividing myself between several places at once, or rather immersing myself in several locations at once, immediately, now, this is not brief, but fully felt, fully experienced, though in a greater context it is but a moment, fleeting and fast … today I struggle to hear my recording, T is loud, even with the headphones on … I keep perspective, it is an experience but it isn’t who I am.
Wednesday 27th Jan 2016 – It’s been almost a year since my first meeting about the residency, I remember a moment of consistently pestering google with various key words
artist + health + residency … artist+ health + residency + London … artist + health + residency + London + free … artist + health + residency + London + free + gallery … artist + health + residency + London + free + gallery + space …
A persistent barrage, a stream of numerous combinations, when up came
