Tobaron Waxman’s project, Block of Ice +1/60, represented the final stage of the exhibition, No Time to Lose. I was working in a completely different part of the world while the installation and performance took place. The team at Peacock were amazing! The amount of work they did to change over the show in such a short period of time is nothing short of phenomenal. And, while all of that was going on, Monika still found time to take a few snaps of the materials as they were being unpacked and prepared for installation. Here are a couple of them …

A Little More of What Happened on Tuesday by notimetolose

(Note: I wrote this blog entry on Thursday afternoon at 2:00 p.m., but I’ve backdated it because the blog is set to keep time in the Eastern Standard time zone, not Greenwich Mean…)

Anja’s S friend, Juan, commented that based the photos on our blog, it looks like we’re spending more time having fun than actually working. Well, I think his opinion is about to change 😉

This is not to say that we’ve not been having fun… because we are! However, as we got closer and closer to our deadlines, the type of work we were doing changed considerably. It’s true that the first couple of days involve doing such things as gathering materials, preparing spaces, and discussing options and possibilities. The pace of things always picks up closer and closer to the deadline. In the case of this show, we had two preview deadlines. The first was Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. in order to receive a reporter from The Scotsman. Our second deadline was on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. to meet a reporter and crew from STV News.

We’re now putting the finishing touches on things in order for the final deadline, which is the exhibition opening at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday… more about that soon.

First up, more photos taken on Tuesday then a pile from Wednesday. Enjoy!

We’ve been busy! by notimetolose

An incredible amount has been accomplished in the past few days: shopping for materials, scouting sites, detailing promotional and didactic material, and preparing the gallery for installation. But, on top of that Monika and I have still managed to squeeze in some fun. First we stopped into the Moorings Bar for pints, and then met up with a group of fantastic people at a lovely spot part of the Ferryhill House Hotel.

Today we’ve avoided starting too early, but the day is wearing on and it looks like it’ll still be a while before we can call it quits. At least our next site scouting jaunt will take us to Aberdeen’s beach! That’s my idea of mixing work and play =-)

I have a ton of photos to share, but not a great deal of time to do it, so I’ll have to leave this post as text-only for now.

UPDATE: Photos!
