So I realized I didn't mention much of what I did yesterday, Or should I say I left a bit unsaid. So basically we had an external examiner come in to have a look at the interim show and ask us a few questions. He even put us into small groups, and gave us a task. We were asked to go over to the show and see the other peoples work within our groups. Read their statements and look at their work, we then had to write them questions that had to be answered by midnight last night. So just in case you've forgotten, this is my work and my statement together:
I was then given 3 questions , so here is what I asked and what I replied:
I plan to use both photography and Illustration. I am unsure how this will look. But I am planning on exploring this path within my main project. I want to merge both illustration and photography together. This could even be as simple as drawing on a photograph. I will also be exploring these separately
So yes, these were my incredibly long answers. Today!
I went to my meeting with my tutor, I got a lot of great advise, I have to admit it is rather nerve racking when speaking of my project and everyone around me is so interested in it and really love what I'm doing..... A little more than me. Maybe this is due to being too close to my project at the moment.
But I am so pumped for my dissertation now, I got a great confidence boost today. My only worry is really getting everything together.
I also heard today which sort of brought me down, I understand it, I do just think it's B.S. I heard that even if you get over a C grade for the dissertation work. this grade doesn't effect my studio work grade. If I get below a C grade for my dissertation, it actually drags my studio work grade down. Not happy about this. Feel like packing it in.
Planning on working my wee butt off tomorrow on this dissertation. Possibly going into uni to do this, I have to admit though I'm having my valentines day early and having a fatty night with my flat mate. So watching Walking Dead, eating pizza, chicken wings, ice cream, a lorry load of chocolate, and having a few bottles of wine..... hoping I wont be hungover tomorrow .. eeeek!
