Thanks once again to Donald for offering us the opportunity to put up our work. The whole organisation of it was largely led by the first years as well as Vic, Andrew and others. I at first was going to make new work for the gallery but as my personal stress ensued I decided to… Read More 2 Girls Gallery
My feedback from this tutorial with Jonathan was invaluable. I was essentially first asked about my feelings towards my grades as they were all quite mixed. I was very pleased with my research paper as it reflected the amount of work I put in and of all the things I wanted to do well in… Read More Unit 1 Tutorial
Really this was me having a muck about with my new camera, playing with light and movement I wanted to see if I could add a further unsettling quality to the image.
My friend who studies Graphic Design at Chelsea and I went around Peckham to record for her art project. Her aim was to talk to homeless people in Peckham. It was a last minute collaboration and so I wanted to make sure we still could approach it from a thoughtful perspective even though we hadn’t… Read More Peckham Sounds

Andrew suggested the idea of body casting, something that I had never thought about nor done before – and is relatively easy to do. A great idea and something I will pursue.

It’s my second time being a part of it and… Read More Science Museum Staff Exhibition
Looks fantastically odd. Keep having to put it back in its box as it creeps me out! I’m thinking of, similar to Juno Calypso, staging photographs with the head – perhaps in public spaces? Somewhere that gives it almost a sense of life but is out of place.
‘Wearing operates in the space between the parameters that define our social normality and the notional point of unmediated expression. Into that space she inserts disjunctive elements that both separate and unify’ (Ferguson, 36) I like the idea of having a ‘disjunctive element’ in my work – that can act as a subversive tool.

I was disheartened at first when coming into the tutorial as I knew I wasn’t as prepared as I would have liked at this stage in the writing process. I was aware we had had all summer to get stuff done and I felt that what I brought to Gareth was lacking basically. I had… Read More 2nd Research Paper Tutorial
