Having Emma and the students talk around my project, helped me consider it from other viewpoints and look at other options. This has greatly helped me to think about what I’m doing for the project and will inform the direction this will take through the rest of the degree.
It’s about taking a 360degree approach to out practice to examine it and how it relates to the world now- so as to establish its currency in terms of dialogue (amongst other things).
Although some of the reading was quite heavy going, we were able to pick out the salient points and find quotations that resonated with our own experience, ideas or concerns or stimulated new thinking.
Day three begins bright and early(ish) with a chilly introduction to tutor Les Monaghan’s commission for Brighton Photo Fringe, the parallel biennial to the Biennial.
Brighton Photography Biennial: A Photoworks Guided Tour Day 2 of the study visit to Brighton saw the group meet first thing at the University…
OCA made its fourth student group visit to Brighton Photo Biennial at the end of October this year. The trip took place over three days, from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon, around an itinerary planned in response to generous feedback from students who’d attended in 2016.
Our group comprised textiles, painting/drawing and photography students at all three levels. This, in itself, was an important factor contributing to open and critical discussion. Added to this was Rebecca’s excellent talk on her own practice and formation as an artist and tutor. Following this she led a discussion on work that several of us had brought along.
