4 weeks into the first term and the looming twin peaks of essay and practical project are showing themselves. The first short project is finished - shoot 6 film stills, using portable flash lighting to produce images which imply a narrative. I did it despite myself - not at all the easiest way of working for me - and yet I do get a sense of the layering of meaning that becomes possible. Next up is the group project with Laura, Marion and Valerie. We seem to be settling around a theme of "Waiting". A shot each using medium format on slide film, And then the essay - 3000 words by January, the module is "Technologies of the Self". Have been trawling through Neil Young's albums on Spotify. Busy times.
