HAPPY NEW YEAR
No time to stop unfortunately BECAUSE (deep breath) … my report is due soon, which is basically the Design Schools version of a dissertation. This unfortunately means however that my beloved practical work is taking a bit of a back seat at the moment… which is fine – the backseat is often comfier. To counteract the HUGE amount of theory work (and to maintain my artistic sanity) I am trying to find some time to reorganise my collection of growing photocopies and screenshots of my Degree show so far.
There’s nothing like a little bit of productive procrastination.
(productive procrastination… productive procrastination… productive procrastination…. it’s hard to say)
It might look like I know what I’m doing (at least I hope it does) but I’m not entirely sure that I do.
BUT for the first time since I’ve been at art college, I’m not scared to try anymore. I’m not afraid to take risks and do something just because I THINK it might work.
It’s because it’s now or never. Literally.
5 months left until my Degree Show…
I’ve made a promise to myself to start organising my thoughts back on my blog again, it really helps me figure everything out. It’s also a great form of procrastination too, which I am a HUGE fan of.
Also, incase you’re wondering why my website address has changed to ‘kirstyelizabeth’ … well, it’s all in the name of BRANDING and I need to start finding some serious consistency to what I’m doing, and this is how I can start that.
So that’s it gone already, pretty much anyway. Semester 1 of forth year is nearly finished and everybody is really confused as to how that actually happened… confused like we have been every year, whenever it gets close to Christmas. You’d think that we would have figured it out where our time would sneaks off to by now huh? BUT NO.
I’m finding it difficult to explain what I am doing this year. My project title literally changes every day or so. I find some other tangent to scurry off into and I don’t have the heart to tell the little ‘idea factory’ in my head, NO!
But for the moment, I am going with: ‘Sensory Crossover‘
I intend to trick the senses through visual and tactile distortion, taking inspiration from my photography of shadows and reflections that I have collected over the past few months. I’m sticking with that. Maybe.
So, this has been a while right? I’m in my forth year now and I am preparing for my impending graduation. This calls for a rebrand and a more precise ‘me’.
I LOVE PAINTING NAILS
and I own NAILCANDI.
Check out my work on Instagram.
Everything is now handed in and the results are coming back to us here and there. I’m very happy with what I’ve achieved this year, but it’s just too scary right now to begin thinking about the degree show that I am going to produce next year. I can’t yet imagine what it is going to look like, or even what I’m going to create but I know that I will get there.
I hope it will be great.
What are my next plans? Well the number one plan is to TIDY EVERYTHING because organisation has went out of the window during the past few weeks, and then I need to update my CV and think about applying for some work experience for the summer. )
I hope that somebody will want me.
