About the Book
This full colour photobook documents a participatory art project which involved a very special character and a community in a unique journey!
Visual Artist, Jill Carter, was commissioned by North East Somerset Arts on behalf of the council to consult with residents in Radstock, Somerset, about play provision for young and old. People of all ages came together in a trial inspired by the gift by one of the residents of a small person with a nifty suit and red hat!
I am a digital storyteller. I love creating journals and badly behaved short run or one off art books/bags/bundles crammed full with quirky drawings, insightful and humorous text, photographs and archives of curios and found objects. As a visual artist, fine art trained, my practice explores how art can develop insight and inspiration, inspire creativity, acting as a catalyst for positive change, creativity and well-being. A natural chronicler, collector and curator, I enjoy playful, poetic and performative ways of responding to people, places and life.
