At CAT we like rain.
When the sun is shining everyone heads for the long, white sandy beaches of Borth and Aberdyfi, or to the panoramic mountain views of Snowdonia, but when it rains there is nowhere better to spend an afternoon than at CAT. Today being a fairly sunny day meant there weren’t many visitors for Geoffrey to interact with, but he did have one cheeky winged visitor to keep him company under CAT’s sleek photovoltaic roof. Tina and I caught the little wren on camera stealing little pieces of strategically placed flapjack (kindly donated by the café) from the grooves in Geoffrey’s slate skull.
Finding a moment to ourselves I read to Geoffrey from the pigment journal I kept during my residency at CAT last year. Part journal, part abstract map of the centre the work entitled My Earth is an intimate insight into my time at CAT through the collecting, processing and creating of 32 earth pigment colour swatches that encourage us to look deeper into the world around us.
With no one left to speak to, Tina, Geoffrey and I brought our filming day to a close ready for our final day of filming at the Centre for Alternative Technology tomorrow.
