Meetings to create portraits for the time machine

In order to ensure that the individual remains central to the development of the artwork, we establish many different ways of collating information which further enhance the function of the artwork (and its relevance to the individual) .

We needed to ensure that information as much information as possible was being collected to inform the making of the time machines. We enlisted Artist Miriam Walsh to interview staff, friends and family to create a more whole picture of Fiona.  We wanted to know more about her interests from the perspective of the people around her, to gain a greater understanding of just who she is.

This will form a series of written portraits which will adorn the walls of the day centre.  As part of our work we will put on a seminar which will look at just how different each persons understanding of Fiona is and how an accumulated understanding can inform better opportunities for her.
