Rick has left the building – timelapse video #MakingWays #CityOfMakers

Rick’s Fast Art Takeaway at Orchard Square was a strange, complex and taxing experience and I can’t deny being relieved when it was over. I think I over-committed in terms of the number of days and hours on-site and I misjudged the sheer physicality of it.

However, it was also highly rewarding and challenging in the good way. It’s interesting to watch the timelapse video after the event as I had forgotten so much of what happened and how many people came, despite some very quiet days.

Here is a montage of me loading everything out, shot over several days due to the limited hours for vehicle access.

Rick’s Fast Art Takeaway timelapse video days 18, 19, 20 & 21 #MakingWays #CityOfMakers

 

Excerpts from the last four days of Rich’s Fast Art Takeaway. The only timelapse left to upload is a summary of the takedown. Despite is being so recent, I forget things so easily and the timelapse reminds me of lots of meetings that I had forgotten. The residency was a dense and enriching experience but also with many disappointments and frustrations. I’ll be writing about this stuff for some time yet.

What a day! Rick’s Fast Art Takeaway timelapse video day 17 #MakingWays #CityOfMakers

This was day 17, the mega day. I ticked a lot of boxes this day, but not solely down to my efforts. I was assisted by Gary, Catherine & Stella & entertained many guests. There is a lot more to say about the agenda behind Rick’s Fast Art Takeaway and it will be revealed gradually, so stand by. In the meantime, here are some more excerpts from the timelapse video.
