Through reporting about a project with male home carers, I’m going to present some of the interactions which took place between myself (as the artist) and the participants as we got to know each other, and became part of each other’s lives. The text takes the form of a series of extracts taken directly from my own personal journals followed by a commentary on each. These have been selected to highlight the similarities between Ingold’s descriptions of creativity and Kester’s model for a dialogical aesthetic, which highlights key points in the engagement processes of a socially engaged artist. These reflective notes, made while the experiences were still fresh in my mind, help to illustrate the impact not only on the participants but also upon the artist as a participant in the social process.
