One day is nowhere near enough time to set up something like this but, fortunately, the previous artist-in-residence, Michael Borkowsky, had all of his stuff out by 9.30am and so I had a whole extra day before my official time started.
Unfortunately, I was nowhere near prepared enough and I had to collect a few things that morning across Sheffield, and that took me five hours. FIVE HOURS to collect the post from home, collect a parcel from the sorting office and collect some display boards from the other side of the city. I was already a bit frazzled but I didn’t get started setting up until after 2pm.
I was expecting to get at least a few people through the door as son as I opened on the Saturday morning, so I primed a load of pizza bases / small plates for Day 01.
At the end of the day, I was completely frazzled, being frustrated I had not got enough done before the grand opening. You can’t hear the swearing, but here is the documentation.
