Unit 2 assessment

Present a resolved body of original creative practice that has evidenced the systematic enhancement of your knowledge and understanding (communication and presentation; technical competence; personal and professional development; subject knowledge; research; experimentation).

 

My body of work, was much more fluid once I had experimented and defined my intentions. This then allowed my proposal to be more clearly structured and have an accurate working title

‘Human displacement and boundaries in our environment’

 

MA proposal

 

Symposium 2

 

Analyse and critically reflect coherently upon your own practice and its context (research; analysis; personal and professional development).

I was able to reflect and challenge my art practice with tutorials, listening and learning from peer’s research papers, portfolio workshops and collaboration/workshops in the low residency.

This a developed my artistic skillset further by understanding the steps to document my time in Greece. In particular the collaboration at South Kiosk. It is also allowed myself to understand the importance to  visit different community organisations and exhibitions that reflect on sensitive topics.

Summarise and evaluate your overall progress and formulate a constructive plan for continuing Personal and Professional Development (personal and professional development; collaborative and/or independent professional working).

The decision making process for the show was guided by the paintings. This then moved to discussion of collaboration and professional decision making for the MA show. This has enabled reflection on future plans.
