To sum up and to show our tutors what we have been up to in the last couple of terms outside of subject, we did a Pecha Kucha based group tutorials, each taking about 5-10 minutes each – it’s much harder to only speak for 5 minutes about your work than previously thought.
In my Pecha Kucha I spoke about how much I enjoyed and learned in field one; talking about how much I feel they enriched my experience this year. Particularly how much I loved going back into ceramics and more the physically demanding processes that that included; as well as how much I loved the work that I could then produce in connection with that, with observational drawing and the relationships between my 2d and 3d work. When talking about field 2, I talked most about the continuation of my work within colour and the expanding into different types of print and textiles work that I had not given much thought to before; these practices being something that I defiantly want to continue in my subject work in future. For constellation I spoke about the subjects and topics that I looked at, and wrote about, in my essay from last term; my essay was quite withdrawn from my practice, and this is something that I will very much change in my dissertation, but the arguments that i looked at and the concepts that I explored, are some points that I would like to draw on in my dissertation essay.
I got some really positive feed back about my dissertation ideas and, though I’ve not had the time to do much research yet, I feel like I know how I need to go on in my work and that I have a pretty solid idea. I was really encouraged by the fact that, though I have not done much research on the subject yet, the suggestions that that Anna gave me, where avenues that I am already very much aware of and have done prior research on. Now I know to go away and look further into these sources, and that I am going in the right direction in doing so.
