A sea of good minds was what I saw infront of me on my first day at this course. Filled with wonderful ideas, new ways of thinking and great yarns to be had- I was thrilled to meet like minded people who could challenge my strengths and weaknesses, cultivating the best use of my brain.
I am very attentive and interested during our communications and critical studies class as we have more creative freedom and are tested to be abstract in our ways. There’s not a rulebook / a set way of how to do certain things. There are no restrictions and boundaries to what we could conjure- It also gives me a reason to talk until the air is almost completely absent from my lungs without any objection from other people. The perfect environment.
I find group activities to be the most exciting- the opportunity to have a much smaller and more concise discussion on things is very engaging. especially when the discussion is about a painting.
Photography has solidified skills that I knew quite well already, however, I’m happy to go over them again. I won’t lie, it’s frustrating because I want to work on a large project rather than gathering multiple images. I feel very creatively restricted in that class but, in all honesty, it’s probably good for me. I’m finding getting good elements of photography to be quite difficult.
A more recent project has excited me a lot brought up by our tutor- Recreating a famous painting through photography. I wanted to create a portrait of the religious figure Mary but as a goth, standing on a man’s head rather than a snake. I don’t think it’s a very friendly idea.
I’ll add photos from the course shortly once I have access to photoshop.
