The small studio was created to house object collections, arrangements and processes, and to be a movable, spatially modest working space. It is a place to hold the material thoughts of practice, and to put them in relationship to changing external surroundings. The small studio marks out an area for practice when space is scarce, and complements the documentation of my larger studio in Pieces of Practice.

The small studio was formed during a cross-art form mentor-ship at Articulate Project Space in Leichhardt, and was made possible by a generously donated packaging crate.

This small studio is actually a smaller small studio than the original started in Leichhardt – unfortunately that small studio was too large for the Gaffa stairway. As the idea behind the studio was that it be easily moved, the studio had to be re-sized. This encounter underlined the relative nature of smallness, the ephemeral nature of my work in general, and the limits that contribute towards defining a practice. So this is the small studio II, and I suppose, now that there are a couple of versions, it is possible there may be more.
