From Last Week


19.11.12

This morning the department is buzzing...Evidence of people having been in the MA space ...voices, none familiar, it would be good to make contact...

Yesterday such a beautiful day... bright, clear, nearly warm...went in search of my churned field...deliberate, brutal, purposeful field lines.... photos...not sure what use they will be.

Strangely nervous about putting stuff up on the wall...

...dream from last night haunts me... I step onto the end of a row boat... we row away from the edge... the end I am sitting in sinks down...I do not resist and enjoy the blissful descent through clear brown green water aware that the further I go down the harder it will be to swim back to the surface...panic and fear grow...the dream ends before I make my decision. 

...I compile a list of shows I would like to see...

...Time spent exploring leaves me feeling unsure how I can best make use of the printmaking which is really what I want to do...

...I hear a lesson on manual cameras..ISO numbers, lenses, lightmeters,  interspersed with timed drawings... 15 minutes, charcoal, another 5 minutes... I am shocked at how much instruction is given...(later someone explains the changes...getting your money's worth, or something?!)

...Not familiar with working in such a noisy atmosphere...that and a worrying self consciousness of how much I talk to myself whist I'm working!

I make slow, unsatisfactory changes to my drawings... and think I'd rather go and learn how to use my old camera properly...

In the evening I meet with Leah, Nigel, Ben, Colin at an exhibition of students work.
