HOMe-hOUSE 38 – The Road to 39

HOMe-hOUSE 38 – The Road to 39

This is a short film which features drawings of the houses and places I have lived in (barring one or two very short stays). Maps place where they are and you can follow the progression I have made over many years.

My original (and grandiose) idea was to buy a road and build all the houses beside it; have train rides; show my work; have one house for a cinema with my favourite films showing; readings of my poetry and a library of my writings – Digglesland – a bit like a cross between Dollywood and St.Fagans Museum. This may have been rather costly.

I hope that I have not contravened too many copyrights, this is not made for financial gain and I would be happy to remove any copyrighted material if required.

    1. I was at Cardiff College of Art from 1973-76, it was in Howard Gardens sort of next door to the prison! It has now moved up to Llandaff. The College of Art in those days was a separate institution and became part of a much bigger one after I left. When I began degrees in art weren’t available, we did DipADs, but during my second-year things changed and I ended up with a BA(Hons), wish now I had decided to keep doing a DipAD, much fancier certificate!
