Back to Uni

After a year of traveling and settling myself down in Devon I am back on my part time Fine Art degree course - I have transferred from Leeds College of Art and Design to Plymouth University and today was the first induction day and welcome! I am impressed with the library and resources available to students - it's huge compared to where I was before and will take a while to find my way around! I can't wait to start the course next week although the thesis is a bit daunting and will certainly be challenging! I have 2 years more to complete the degree equivalent to the 3rd and final year of a full time course.

Last year before taking a year off I was working with a family archive of transparences and using projection - I am keen to see if I can deepen this process - work with them in a different way - these are a couple of the images which were projected in a pair (side by side). The transparences were quite damaged but this was exactly what made them so exciting for me - memories of deceased family (this is my mother who died 30 years ago) are often fragmented and faded!

I'll be using this blog now as a way of exploring my practice over the next couple of years - using it as a kind of sketchbook/journal of the work I am doing for my degree although I will also be using a tactile sketchbook too!

O yes, I remember these kinds of images from before. I love them. Will be good to see how your work with them evolves.

I like your last statement...using the blog to fit your needs over the next couple of years...sketchbook/journal. A visual diary of sorts...look forward to the playing out of this part of your art life.
