I was lent this novel last Wednesday by Roaming director, Nancy Roth, whom I was visiting for a very enjoyable working lunch. I finished reading it last night - it was hard to put down. 'Novel' doesn't really do it justice as a descriptor - I would suggest 'work of art'. I hesitate to say any more, other than highly recommending it.
This is a page for notes about how Roaming is related to contemporary art as a whole. We hope the contributors list will expand.
Laura Wild Roaming represents the continuing, collaborative development of my PhD research project - 'Becoming Invisible: Art and Day-to-Day Life' (Loughborough University, 2011).
Nancy Roth Roamingcuts across all kinds of old, inhibiting categories--especially what is and isn't "art", what is and isn't "research," what is and isn't "good" or "true" or "valuable."We all want to learn something new, about ourselves, one another, and the conditions we share. I'm Nancy, one of the Directors of Roaming CIC, and an enthusiastic supporter. We'd welcome comments--whether they're about the posts themselves or not!
