Review with Neil
Talked over changes to direction of project, concerns and where my research is heading, he seems quite happy that I am going in the right direction with a solid idea.
. Think about books: process/making doing/the final outcome
. Exploring "how far..."
. just keep on DOING
. comic as a summary of reflective journal?
. 4 mini projects: (3D/Pen and Ink/Printmaking/ Photography and masks? type as character?) would cover my research fine (with annotation)
Excuse me if I take this as a sign to not worry quite as much.
Brief talk with John
. Highlighted theatre as a potential source of influence: stage design, creating theatrical spaces, vignettes of points from my family's life.
. Their journal is called Blue Pages (chase up at library)
. Do I need to construct 'full round' models? why not just a small element, that needed to sell the image, the scene as a whole enough? Or simple relief? Benefits and constraints of these methods?
. Performative realities
. Conceptually interesting
. (be open to take what I do into any arena- me as a theatre designer? I could dig that)
. practice makes me a better illustrator; but widening horizons makes me a better thinker.
. David Hockney
Had a chat with Poppy from fashion on the way out; sourcing somewhere for offcuts and odds and ends for sculptures.
Ended up having a big chat about what we could get up to from an illustration stadpoint, took a look at the digital embroidery machine, and talked about maybe having an induction to using it soon. Brilliant.
Also suggested taking a visit to the jewellery studio sometime, take a look at the wires/found objects/processes used.
Why haven't I been chasing up my contacts?
Send emails tonight to:
Rob (moldmaking and casting)
Darren (he should be my go-to guy!
