Intended Thought 90: Experiences Portfolio-ed

In reflection. I can see it now, in space, this space, about space. Make the work, and the space makes more work. But also the place, placement, placing. Plain. Not much can be said, so people talk too much.

~ Reflective Overview ~

In completing my assessment for the Artwork & Audience module, it was interesting to look back and consider what I actually took away from the experiences. Since I mostly took a backseat with regards to the planning experience of the exhibitions (since I had already experienced having to do such things, whilst others hadn’t). In the end I think the most prominent aspect of the two exhibitions was the way in which I made my work interact and engage with the physical sites themselves. And also how to deal with art that is on the whole very ambiguous.

Within the meeting about my ongoing research project, I was concerned that I had not made enough progress, since my research had steered me a little away from tattooing itself, and more into the actual machines and processes they used. But in discussing what I had learnt and the elements of interest that had developed through my shadowing at the tattoo studio, I realised there was so much connecting it to my current interests for my final exhibition piece. Therefore, it is through this strand of research that I hope to inform the current mess of ideas I have in my mind regarding my final dissertation research and work.

~ Reflective Overview ~

Throughout today I had three intensive tutorial that almost covered every assessment in progress I have going. It was particularly stressful discussing my upcoming portfolio hand-in, because the assessment has a very open ended reflective approach, whilst asking for very specific bits of information. I was worried I hadn’t done enough to prepare an idea of how my work was progressing, but it turned out in the meeting that my system to illustrate my experience and involvement during the two exhibitions was clear and professional. The only note I was given was to be wary of how much writing I added to my laid out images and not over think how much needed to specifically be said, since Irene had been part of these projects already.

My tutorial with Tim was really focussed on how I might approach my Project Proposal assessment. Since he had been directly involved with the Seven Stories project and been part of the panel that had discussed and selected which projects would be realised. It was a little worrying to try and clarify what aspects of the work needed addressing, but overall it seemed like the project as a proposal was very solid to begin with, it had only been circumstances that had prevented the work from being selected.

With Tom, the discussion was much more based on a general overview of the course and the progress I had made. Much of the internal and external stresses since the beginning of the course, had been plaguing me, and it was generally good to work through some of the issues up until now. But when focusing on the final project, I found a lot of my ideas had become messier and harder to put into comprehensive statements. Therefore, I decided to take a step back and review my ideas more practically before trying to structure them to another person again.
