My drawing for Nick Kennedy’s ‘Choral Drawing Project #1’, ‘a participatory project for 50 people to make and own a drawing, which will be shown at mima

Paraphrased instructions we were given: Roll a dice onto the paper, aim for it to stop on top of the cross (in the middle of the paper), each time you roll the dice record the finishing position of the dice with the roll number. Repeat 4000 times.

Moulding to Me (April 2014) | Adam Wells

The polystyrene balls moulded to my body and slowly changed after I was no longer present.

Hugging 98% Air (April 2014) | Adam Wells
(Screenshot from performance exploring the properties of a mass of polystyrene balls) 
Due to the fluidity of the balls they moulded to my body and created a ‘personalised hug’. The polystyrene balls are 98% air so I was mostly hugging and finding comfort in air, something we don’t often think about as providing comfort.

Are you doing a foundation at the moment? Where? Would you recommend it? Are you planning on doing another degree? Thank you so much :) I'm a bit indecisive over whether or not I wanna do one after y13

I have one week of exhibition duties left and then I will have finished foundation! I did it at my local art college (in the north east of england). Yeah I would highly recommend it! Doing the Foundation course has definitely reaffirmed that I want to study art at university and it gave me the opportunity to study art full time, which I’ve found a lot different to A-Levels. It’s been my favourite year of education so far as you have a lot of freedom and control over what you do. Also as it’s very independent it has been useful in preparing me for university. It’s allowed me to try out lots of different mediums (including textiles and performance) which I’ve really enjoyed! It has also helped me get into universities I wouldn’t have got into if I had applied straight from A-levels! Also the course is usually free so if you don’t end up enjoying it you haven’t lost anything! I’m going to study a Fine Art degree at Goldsmiths in september! Foundation courses are not all the same so I’d recommend looking at different places you can do a foundation course at. Hope you manage to decide and good luck! If you want to ask anything else feel free!
