This week we had assessments on our final pieces of work for this term, so now, regarding the practical module - we're done until after Christmas! Everyone's worked so incredibly hard, and there's some really interesting pieces of work that challenge the conventions of typical viewing of photography! Last night we had a party at the exhibition venue to celebrate the end of the term and the opening of the exhibition, Looking Awry (which will be on until March!). I think its fair to say, everyone had a great time, and it was really nice for everyone let their hair down a little - especially after being so stressed over the past few weeks.
Regarding my own work, and considering my struggles with motivation, etc, recently, I'm so much more pleased with the verbal feedback I received on Tuesday for my work, than I ever thought I would be. It was such a relief to see that my hard work (and panicking) had paid off, and there's a lot of potential in what I've been working on. For now though, there's some written work (including the dissertation!!!!) to complete over the Christmas period.
A quick reminder that our exhibition is being displayed at The Art House, Derby, from now until 3/3/2018, if you're interested!!
There's also some things I've been wanting to discuss about my university experience as a whole, which I will probably get round to writing in the near future, but whether I'll wait until I've completely finished uni or not, I'm not sure. But in general, there are some feelings I've had about the university experience that I did not expect to have. So, I guess keep an eye out for that, haha.
I'm going to head off and get some more of this essay written. Bye for now!
