My final collaborators were; Juliet Black, Kirsten Haydon and Mary-Jane Duffy. Juliet is a graphic designer and photographer, we met most days across several weeks to put the catalogue together. The process of crafting how a publication communicates through paper weight and colour, typography, layout, binding, size, color of headings, and length of the publication, print quality and that’s not even considering all the actual content, was time dense but really refined my ideas. Mary-Jane Duffy was a miracle worker with the extraction and ordering of ideas and stories, as a professional editor, she pushed the catalogue to a level of sophistication impossible without that clarity of vision and knowledge. Kirsten Haydon mentored me through Handshake 2 and my first shaky beginnings as an old, but new again maker. When I get stuck I still hear Kirsten’s gentle but firm voice in my ear saying “Kelly, just get on with it”. Her article for the catalogue gives the reader insights into my working process.
