Reflecting on Wadsley Festival

Over the weekend I attended Wadsley Festival, armed with a bag full of perfume-based art work.

I think the festival confirmed the many layers of engagement Perfume as Practice contains. It has the capacity to ask questions of identity, creative processes, and ways of communicating, and also is able to be perceived simply as a fun set of pleasantly scented objects, with neither standpoint being condescending to the other. The audience at Wadsley Festival tended towards the latter, and as such my work received praise and a great deal of support. And I’m very thankful for that.

A pleasant and relaxing experience, then. And one which I very much enjoyed.
