At the end of last year, Alice gave us a task to create an A3 size board containing references, text, quotes and examples of images that we were interested in related to our year-long project.
My year long project so far has been a proper mixed bag, some print destruction, some negative distressing, some architecture, some portraiture so I put three boards together using my computer and PowerPoint along with the graphics table so I could scrawl directly onto the digital page.
Sarah x 2 came to talk to us today about their practice and how they are better individual artists when working together. Oh and lots of food discussions too.

Time to do some more printing ready for some chopping up and a tutorial chat about why I love breaking things open…
Photograms and Alternative Prints? What could possibly go wrong in my journey to take on two of Alice’s small challenges in the name of exploring Materiality.
Seminar today was about Materiality, Purists, Pictorialists and a bit about Academic Integrity and Referencing. Some questions and a couple of challenges to complete.
As part of my Full Year Project we sat around and chatted about each other’s work in a tutorial session. Here is my first group of test prints that I chopped up and reassembled. Why did I do this?
