KIOSK FROM HOME: #2 2B OR NOT 2B
Artist and co-founder of 2b or not 2b life drawing collective, Jessica Au, gives us her Kiosk from home essentials.
2b or not 2b have been running Zoom life drawing classes to keep their artists active at home and to help ensure their models are able to get paid.
DESCRIBE WHAT YOU DO IN 3 WORDS:
WHAT DOES YOUR WORKSPACE LOOK LIKE?
Since lockdown, the days have merged together and my workspace reflects that. There’s no order to things! Laptop on one side, drawing materials and paper from my life drawing class on the other and snacks piled on top. It’s a creative mess. I’m cool with it though.
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO WHILST WORKING?
I’ve been digging back into nostalgic 80s music recently; Kate Bush, The Cure, Siouxsie and The Banshees, Oran Juice Jones, you name it I’ve dug it out.
WHAT ARE YOU READING AT THE MOMENT?
Not going to lie, every time I have read something online it’s been the news on Coronavirus, I feel like there’s nothing else more relevant to read at the moment. Otherwise I’ve delved into Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro every now and then.
IF YOU WEREN’T DOING WHAT YOU DO, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING?
If I wasn’t so heavily involved in the visual arts, I’d be a musician and dancer, or I’d be working with animals in their natural habitat. Either or, I’d be very happy.
