In 2005 Shedboatshed (Mobile Architecture No 2) was awarded the Tate Modern Turner Prize. Simon Starling describes his work as ‘the physical manifestation of a thought process’, revealing hidden histories and relationships.
I didn’t “get it” then, but now I do. Though my shed is intact (for now), it could become many possibilities. A boat? I think not, being that I have one already in my other blog. A castle? that is a promising idea, though I expect that the turrets wouldn’t withstand the supporting structure. A Dojo for meditation? Maybe, but can you see the light in that? A home? it is this already.
It is my home, and for now I relax there. It’s always time for tea and the shed here is never locked. Come pay me a visit sometime. I’ll get the billy on.
