I really enjoyed my AA2A scheme and felt that it has helped me at this point in my career. It has been great to be back in an art institution working alongside other people and to have access to facilities such as the welder, plasma cutter and laser cutter. I have produced a lot of new work which I will use to apply for new projects and to think through future ideas. I am also hoping to show the work as a body of work in an exhibition in the future. I especially enjoyed attending talks like the VISUALISE talk on art and perception. This really inspired me to make new work and confirmed that my interests are something that is the topic of research for people working in different dicsiplines. Such as other artists, curators and scientists. I found it very interesting giving talks and tutorials to students. I also gave a practical welding demonstration. By giving talks and taking questions I was able to clarify ideas I have been thinking about and to really reflect on my own work. I have been inspired by the studetns work and discussions that I have had with them and hope that they have found my work inspiring and that I will be able to maintain links with the University and the students. I would like to say thank you to all the staff who have helped me during my time at Anglia Ruskin. Their kindness and knowledge has been above and beyond what I could have hoped for.
