So yesterday I attended a lecture by Alison Willoughby which was very inspiring and it was so intriguing to find out more about her history and her work. I was lucky enough to get a one to one tutorial with her where we looked through my current third year work together. It was so fun discussing my concept with her and coming up with crazy ideas together! She is so down to earth and really helped me gather my thoughts better. After speaking with Alison and completing some more development today I feel have opened a new door into a mass of excitement! I have so many ideas flowing now and cant wait to get them all down on paper and then hit the print rooms. I'm thinking scale, spot, disc, attach, length, surface! Photos of development process to come.

Competitions, competitions, competitions

Today I have been on the hunt for competitions I could enter! My course has worked with Trend Bible in the past on a live project so I thought their under-graduate prize fund competition would be perfect for me.

I have sent them a lovely email telling them all about my concept for my Major Project and why I am a deserving candidate to win the prize fund and two week placement with them. Fingers crossed! :)

Another day, another lecture

The talk I attended today was by a photographer named Richard Whitehead who kindly shared with us many of his photos and journeys from his career, both past and present. It was a fascinating insight into 'life after Uni' sort of speak, how he become a photo-journalist and who he had taken on commissions from in the past. He is now currently a practitioner and lecturer of photography at CCAD.

Event Week

Today I attended a lecture by Doug Patterson, it was so interesting and really inspiring! He told us all about his life and work which involved various crazy journeys around the world. He mainly spoke about his architectural talent and how for ten years or so he worked on 'The Great House' situated in the West Indies. Doug was commissioned to research, design, project manage and build this magnificent palace and 30 acre garden on the island of Mustique in the West Indies. This involved travelling round Europe and the Far East gathering craftsmen and artists to help with the project and sourcing various rare materials such as marble and semi precious stones.
