Unit 1 assessment

Formulate, describe and implement a challenging and self-directed programme of study, relating to your Project Proposal

Please see below my project proposal. It has changed a lot from V1 to V2 and then slightly from V2 to V3. Over the last few weeks I have explored nature and technology and given the topic more of a visual direction.

Critically engage with practice-based research and contribute actively to debate and discussion

I have engaged with different materials in my practice; ink, painting, video and VR.

The subject matter started out very differently by trying to move to a different space in time, Australian history. However, this idea was not progressing further, I couldn’t link this to my everyday, which I now know is very important.

In London, I’ve realised the importance of exploring my surroundings with photographs and then developing this further with different materials in my practice.

Also, the strength of learning how each others art practice develops has been a great learning curve. To really critic your own art practice allows for further depth and exploration in practice base research.

Critically reflect upon your practice and articulate a clear understanding of methodology and context of your creative practice

My artistic practice evolves from reflecting on society and observing this in my art practice. Varies artists have inspired and influenced my artistic practice throughout the year, William Kentridge, David Hockney, David Cross, Jules Engel, Len Lye, Bozenna Biskupska, Mark Rothko, Justin Mortimer, Anslem Kiefer, Doris Salcedo and Joseph Beuys.

Two books in particular really stand out that have influenced my ideas, Speculative Everything (Anthony Dunne & Fina Raby) and Doors of Perception (Aldous Huxley)

Please see below some reflective examples on my blog;
