Periscope

live art periscope

Work in progress

 

So this week I have been addicted to Periscope. Many really fantastic artists and galleries are using it to show off their work, so I have decided to join in the fun. You can find me on there with the user name @marniepitts. I think the app needs some improvements (for example this latest video of mine is rather pixelated fro the first 20 seconds).  I am using it to talk about this new series of works I am making and to show you my process. I have also been answering some questions about what I do. The nice thing is they delete the broadcasts after 24 hours so although I am nervous about making them that somehow makes me feel better!.

In this painting "Pinioned" I explore aviation. The effects that our increased air travel has on our environment. How the pollution impacts on the other creatures we share this world with. I want it to be a reminder that this urban world is of our own making and that nature must be considered in our activities.
