Started writing the essay today, got bogged down with the intricacies of the format, so never really achieved a lot by going in. Did a bit more to the jigsaw.
Hope to make a jigsaw puzzle in ceramic, should be interesting. I am also going to investigate the topic of missing people in Ireland. I can use the metaphor of the missing jigsaw piece of a puzzle. I hope to perhaps get some images of missing people and to make portrait paintings using the reduction method, so as to make the images barely recognisable. I am quite excited about this new direction, it has a lot of potential, and is also a contemporary issue.
