    I’ve been wondering how soap could work as a sculptural medium.

    I was thinking mainly about how it stands as a material with its connotations of cleansing, strong associations with the body, transformations between dirty/corrupt/tarnished and clean/new/pure.

    Also about its physicality- it comes as a solid, is used with the addition of water. Can be melted, moulded, and re-hardened. But if left to dry out, it can shrivel and crack and take on a different form.

    As a material with such mutability and bodily associations, it seemed logical to start experimenting with it.

    Today i melted some plain bar soap down, and sort of crammed/spread it into some acrylic hemispheres and cardboard tubes. They’re in the freezer now.

    Today I received my application pack for A Letter in Mind, an open exhibition with an anonymous auction in aid of the National Brain Appeal.
I think it’s an excellent idea, if you’re in the UK you should definitely get yourself a pack, it’s free and for charity! Click the picture or the link above

    Amid the hectic comings and goings over the last few weeks, I completely neglected to post on here about an exciting opportunity I’ve been lucky enough to be offered. There is an organisation called Art House in Wakefield (West Yorkshire, about 30mins drive south of Leeds for those of you unfamiliar with UK geography). The director David saw my work at my degree show, and along with three others from my year, has offered me a place on a paid graduate residency in December. I basically get to stay in a flat with the other artists (when I do the residency there’ll be some grads from other unis too), make work in a studio space and then have our studio open to visitors as part of the Wakefield Art Walk.

    I’m yet to get to know who will be there the same month, but I do know one of them is a guy from my college, Jack Fisher
