If you normally read posts on email, can I recommend just this once you click on the header and read the post online? WordPress have made it snow on the hills of Rowen – you will see the little specks float down past the electricity pylons of my banner after a while. Sadly, there’s not enough snow to stick.
I’ve been puzzling the pros and cons of on-linery this week, sparked by a comment made by Grayson Perry at the annual Peter Dormer applied art lecture. He was glad that as an object maker he’d avoided the terrible economic effects the Internet had had on musicians, writers, and film-makers…
The Internet may be terrible for selling craft, but it’d still a way to get work seen. This week I discovered MyShakespeare – an exploration of Shakespeare online. I’m not sure about all the performances on there yet, although this one is lovely. I’m submitting some work: not sure whether to go for Hamlet or the Tempest… both are of course are about the ‘seachange’….
I was inspired to re-read Hamlet after seeing David Tennant’s at the RSC Courtyard – it was phenomenal…. so maybe it’ll be that one.
