Today is the first real day of my blog. Yesterdays postings were simply about me learning the mechanics of how to post things with my ever-helpful designer Kevan. And so now I'm up and running I have to give some serious thought as to the purpose of this blog. Am I simply adding to the stream of e-verbiage that it is so easy for all of us to spew out?
Perhaps, but I also know that this technology is changing the world and the way we relate to each other; the way politics is conducted. So I am using this first posting to remember Ai Weiwei. Here he is - free and on my studio wall. But where is he now?
China - you will find that many of us artists, and many others too, will not forget him easily.
