The time at the Observatory will be similar to a time-lapse project. Working at the Observatory for 28 consecutive days gives a rare chance to focus and ‘be’ in one space and focus more intensely on the present. Unlike other projects and residencies where the time between each visit was longer and less intense. The concentration of one moment is the visual and spiritual density of any artwork. Here a dialogue will begin between observation and invention, where a fleeting moment will be recorded by painting, drawing, words and sounds. Julie will also walk around the Salt Marshes each day, as daily walks are already part of her practice where it clears her mind and then the landscape delivers ideas.
