Who Am I?

I ran a Self Portrait workshop at Palace Court, part of Plymouth College of Art, as part of the Tate Exchange project. Participants were encouraged to explore what inspired them, comforted them, excited them, defined them, to contemplate their dreams. We utilised portable scanners/ photocopiers to image parts of our bodies, personal items and materials, moving them across the screen during the scan, introducing bright light or darkness, experimenting with the settings. The scans were used as a basis for collage, painting, drawing, re-scanning and working into again.
