The custom bird box that we created for the Put A Bird On It project is now complete and on its way to the good folks at We Make in Portland, USA. Here is the complete box, followed by a few process images. Jonathan did a great job with the quirky construction, from a design we cobbled together during a Skype video chat.
We are really pleased to be currently working on the PUT A BIRD IN IT PROJECT. We are among good company making a custom bird house for a fantastic Portland based project. Here is a sneak peak into our process so far:
Here is another collaborative sketch made on the iPad using the fun and powerful Sketchshare app. This one came together pretty quickly. We both really liked the open white areas of the image, the simplicity and the understated oddness of the imagery. That makes 35 collaborative black and white images made in this particular app. We are aiming for 154 of them as part of an installation in the 154 exhibit in June.
Since it's appearance in the AppStore a little over 2 weeks ago, SketchShare the "real time" collaboration app for the iPad has become a regular part of our day. We were excited to learn that it was awarded "app of the week" on the UK App Store and the banner advertising the new included one of the Woven Narrative works.Good work chaps!!
Here is the full work created using SketchShare (it was our very first)
Here is a work in progress. I guess its a sort of 3-way collaboration, as it started life as a photograph taken by Yvonne Roberts of the 154 Collective as part of the 154 exhibition project. I did some initial work from the image, drawing using a Cosmonaut Stylus on the iPad using the Sketchtime app. Late last night (UK time) I mailed it over to Jonathan, thinking the image was dead in the water! Whilst I was sleeping Jonathan had been hard at work adding to the image, and giving Barnsley the 'village' treatment. On opening my email this morning the revamped sketch was there. I sketched some more, tweaked in some texture and there you have it.......
New collaborative sketches made using the amazing and fun new app sketchshare, which allows up to four people to work on one image simultaneously on Internet connected iPads anywhere in the world. Awesome!
