In August, this year I was granted Arts Council funding for research and development, for the creation of a major installation: Air Wind and Fire. The work will portray my life with mental illness over the last 25 years, showing my mental state, revealing the highs and lows, the side effects of prescription drugs and my slow recovery since moving to Wales 18 years ago.
During this R&D phase I will be keeping a mind diary – In My Mind There Are Many Rooms – visually displaying my mind state on each day for 120 days.
The images produced are posted daily on my web site www.timiliffeartist.com
The purpose of writing to you is to ask if you would take part in the research by giving me, up to 1hour of your time, on Sunday 13th September 2015 at 11am.
At this time I would like you to join other people and myself in various places, in making something with the enclosed box that reflects the state of your mind at this time. There are no rules! Cut it, paint it, burn it. In fact do anything you like. All I ask, is that you return it to me by the end of September. I have enclosed a stamped addressed label for its return.
