This is an invitation to contribute to a photography project devised by artist Jeanne Blissett Robertson inspired by ‘The Carrier Bag of Fiction’ by Ursula K. Le Guin.
The quote a ‘womb of things to be and tomb of things that were, this unending story’ acts as an inspiration; Jeanne has devised a set of instructions to select objects and with some playful arrangement you will create an installation that connects these objects to others, creating a photograph and then a riso print.
This workshop looks at capturing your household objects in a focused way, rethinking their meaning and quality when in relation to you and one another. The objects may never interact again, but the documentation will serve as a reminder of a surreal point in time.

Jeanne Blissett-Robertson (b.1993) was born and raised in Brighton and graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2015 with a BA Hons degree in Sculpture and Environmental Art. She currently lives and works in Brighton, working across sculpture and installation using hand-crafted and digital processes. Her multi-media work combines design with nature, curating and fusing both sources of inspiration to form a sense of escape and unlimited possibility. She recently exhibited work in Lewes Light Festival 2020 and took part in an international residency in Abu Dhabi,2019. Alongside her practice, Jeanne works with organisations to carry out experimental workshops with diverse groups of people including prisoners, art teachers, young adults and children with SEND.
