Having resolved my camera issue, I began to photograph my peers as the beginning of an inquiry into stereotyping of refugees and migrants. I also began to consider further the questions that I might ask with the Digital Graffiti.

Thinking forward to the imagery I then began thinking about how I can work with text further on the Space Blankets using Black Light. I have also been considering the message that I am trying to put across.
I concluded that to have a message would be forcing an opinion onto to people and it is more in keeping with my ethos to encourage people to question, think and consider. As a result, I have decided to use Questions with the Digital Graffiti rather than statements.
The overriding question that relates to stereotyping is the difference between a refugee and a migrant and do people really know what that difference is.

Screen Printing Workshop at the Carriageworks Denbigh with Tara Reid. Below are some of the final prints. Having wanted to do this for many years, I found this a really useful experience and feel very comfortable and confident that I could set up screen printing at home and work with it quite well.

I began experimenting with some photography and my new fence, a tad unsuccessfully due to my camera not performing as expected.
Experimenting further with the Space Blanket material, I decided to make a fence from an old canvas frame and the space blanket material that I could use as a prop with some photography.
