I had a great Skype chat with Ruudt last night. It has been a very busy time for him recently with a lot of travel, exhibition commitments and teaching. He has just returned from time in Brazil, and on 23 May heads to Japan for three months. Lucky, lucky! In terms of our collaboration, he has now directed his first mutation event and we have agreed the timing of his second. We also discussed some of my ideas for installation, and have agreed on a way forward. I will start to test and flesh these out. Once Ruudt arrives to Japan, communication opportunities are likely to be limited, so I will keep him in the loop via emailed images.
