Trading

I went to Freize Art in Regents Park, London, a strange experience - so much expectation and money it felt more like a fashion event. The exchange of ideas and concepts into hard cash - a strange market and one that the artists do not seem to benefit greatly from, other than gaining their reputation trhough association with gallery owners and dealers.
With ideas of Fair Trade and planning for next years events during Fair Trade fortnight this yet again strengethened my aim to make and promote the action of making that is not resource wasteful, either for maker or buyer.
There is no image for this entry, which is indicative of the amount of reading I am doing. Beginning to get itchy fingers, wanting to make for the sake of making is not a good reason to create anything!
