Presentation of work
I presented my work last week, to the class. The presentation was of my paintings that I have created over the last few years. It was interesting to see the work in a presentation style to see where there are links and possible concepts.
I did attend last year, and then deferred my placement. It was then a long time from when I had written my application for the course. This really did create a lot of distance between my application and what I wanted to get out of the course to improve my practice. I think going away and then returning this week allowed myself, to look at my original application and realise my intentions. It was to push my artwork practice further to explore different mediums. I didn’t want to continue to produce artwork in the exact same way but challenge myself with different ideas that relates to technology and the changing time ahead.
It is really interesting each time I have gone back to study how learning styles have changed and what is required due to the technology that is now available. On my foundation course which I started in 2003, (tafe in Australia) which was Visual Arts there was a small amount of graphic art taught but there was nothing in the way of a blog but just a visual diary. Again when I did my BA leading on from tafe, there was computer work for an essay but it was again visual diary. It wasn’t until I studied Visual Communication here that it was all done online. It is interesting over time, even the way you learn changes at a quick pace…
