Artist Residency in Motherhood

100 day project

100 reasons I don't have time for art. I will be taking one polaroid photograph every day of all the things I do that gets in the way of creating art. Feeling frustrated with lack of time, resources, an abundance of everyday work (paid work, housework, mother-work, invisible work), I hope that the discipline of the project and the daily routine will encourage me to turn these creative barriers into a creative outlet. I have chosen to use polaroid rather than digital for a few reasons; there is no room for editing images therefore as a process it is far more precious. It is also expensive so I will only allow myself one per day - if it turns out that one is a dud then the mistakes become part of the project!

Here's day 1 - 15! Only 85 days to go :0
