It is a strange feeling to get the login codes from someone’s instagram account and post messages as an online-artist-in-residence. Normally, the artist in residence travels to a destination with a bag, but I stayed at home. That is how it was with the SchetsupResidency. I posted my sketches twice a day and every now and again, my telephone would beep with a message for the curators Sid and Jim. But stranger than the feeling of being at home with a stranger’s account was that this online-residency felt like a real residency. I focused on my art, posting twice a day, I put myself through extra challenges, and got out of the house to photograph industrial sites, I got direct feedback (likes) and I landed up with a body of work that will give me enough material to make some new choices.
On the website gu.pe.hu I put my artworks together, so have a look at the results of the residency. You will find my collection of images in the form of a scrapbook bound with lines and shapes and presented in a SVG format on a one-paged-website.
