Geraint Edwards is a Welsh, Sheffield-based artist. His work is an exploration of the art-object in an age of the non-object.

Here are some of his thoughts on being a Space CADet in 2019:

 

"I’d been developing a large-scale installation idea for some time and built a small model to test it. The model worked great, but I had no idea whether it would work functionally if blown up to a larger scale. To test it properly, I was going to need a large space to experiment in, which I couldn’t afford to rent.

I heard about the Space Cadets programme through the CADS website and got in touch to show my model and explain what the next stage was and what I was hoping to build if I had access to a larger space. They were really positive about my proposal and incredibly helpful in getting the room equipped so that the lighting worked ok (the work depends a lot on even light distribution).

I’m pleased to say the experimenting worked out and it works – something I would never have been able to do without CADS’s support. I’d like to say more about the work, but as it’s still in development, I won’t give anything away, just that now I know it works on this scale, I’m much more confident that it will work full-scale, and I now have proof of concept that I can use in funding applications and approaching venues.

I’m hugely grateful to CADS for the use of the space and the freedom to experiment that it’s given me – it’s been really productive and I can’t thank them enough. "
