Artist Tom Campbell has just started a 2 month project using Filament 14 as his base. He is an Irish artist who is resident in Oxford to spend time with his brother who is being supported currently by the charity Mind.
"The Dog Project will be a collaboration between artist Myself and Mind a charity that works with people who have mental health issues.
The idea behind the dog project is to make many papier-mâché dogs that will be decorated with newspaper and ink ,upon completion of a large number of dogs they will be taken on the street 'for a walk'"
These dogs are likely to be auctioned at the end of the project to raise valuable money towards the work that Mind does.
This project is a re-run of a similar project facilitated by Tom in Ireland where over one hundred dogs were made, See dogmation below...
"During the facilitation I will be using my temporary studio in Magdalen Road Studios,if you are interested in helping make a dog feel free to contact me."
Many hands make many dogs.
