Over the last week we were happy to announce we had recieved our first ever funding. It is an exciting time for Tons of Sense, but as with many other artists it can sometimes feel hard to accept financial help. There is always doubt as to whether your practice is worth it, if you should stop wasting money and get a ‘real job’. I think joined has articulated this feeling better than Amanda Palmer. Her words on the subject always inspire us to keep trying, to keep making new works and to remember our value as artists.
It’s Winter performing her Showcase piece from 2016, she choreographed the movement and composed the track. We love how the music and the physicality correspond to accompanying projection. Having the abstract animation builds the atmosphere of the world in which the piece exists.
