The Feedback Etc… session held for my recent installation work The Third Wheel was incredibly beneficial and worthwhile. Independently putting on shows often leaves you feeling deflated and with little sense of conclusion contrary to expectations. Having other artists really interrogate the work in a supportive environment allowed me to examine whether my intentions for the work came across and also inspired ideas for developments of the work and future projects. Not having gone through art school the opportunity to receive feedback was invaluable, and the model of the artist being very much a listener in the process I think is really unique and serves to connect and strengthen a community of artists in Perth. – – – Jackson Eaton
