Guest post - Doug McGovern

My name is Doug McGovern and I am doing a HND course at south Kent College. I am in the middle of a project involving reconstruction of the ready made using soft toys to explore childhood, time and the human condition.
To explore what this means to us and make a connection with time and discovery that it lost to us. I hope to realise my intentions with a sculpture that will represent these ideas and give the viewer their own food for thought.
This past year i have been exploring the ideas and thoughts surrounding the human condition that is time and its different fazes in our lives and attempting to capture moments that have past using different mediums, this is my first journey into sculpture.

These are a few examples of my past work:

Those poor teddies..... Doug, so did a teddy do something really bad to you in your childhood?? :o) *giggle*
Your course project sounds like a really interesting journey - please do another post to show us what else you end up doing with the teddies :-)
