Showing my artist portrait to others after working on it by myself for so long was quite a nerve racking experience. However, everyone seemed pretty happy with the piece, I think everyone really likes Claire’s work, which really helps to engage them with the artist portrait. The only consistent feedback I received was that I should think about adding slightly longer pauses within the audio track, to allow viewers to fully digest what Claire is saying before moving on to a new topic. I totally agree with this sentiment and have expanded my artist portrait slightly to give it more breathing room. When you’re working on a project by yourself for a long time, it’s things like pacing and visual rhythm that become hard to analyse as you get used to the pace that you applied at the start of the piece.


Catch you later,
