Automatic writing workshop

I recently attended an online workshop with Redeye in Collaboration
with photographer Sam Batley. The workshop revolved around automatic writing
and ways to express emotion creatively.

Sam Batley’s practice explores his recovery with drug and
alcohol addiction, using photography as a form of expression. The workshop consisted
of Sam discussing the use of automatic writing as a form of expression and
influence on his practice and several opportunities to attempt automatic
writing. I found, after attempting the writing a few times, that I enjoyed the
process. Writing my thoughts down quickly rather than planning and structuring
them felt more natural and helped me express and identify more of the emotions
I was experiencing.

I will continue to use this method within my practice, to influence
my images and to possible accompany some of my work.
