Vis Com

So my vis com rotation is coming to an end, and I am really going to miss it. The idea of one day projects would usually send me into blind panic, but the fast pace, challenging projects we've completed in vis com have been great. I love the freedom to be completely mad, yet have the structure I sorely missed in fine art. The past two weeks have taught me that experimenting and not thinking too hard or far ahead can lead to surprisingly good results, my work has ranged from giant fighting chair robots to balaclava wearing aliens invading. I have also learnt that the price of photocopying is ridiculous in Pimlico and that I should avoid A3 colour...
I did find the audience project quite difficult as it took me about 5 days to settle on a sender and receiver, now I've settled on a fish asking its owner to set it free...I can only hope it works out.

Fine Art

Well I have to say I am glad the first rotation is over, as I had already thought, Fine Art is not for me. I always knew it would be a challenge but the fast pace and freedom I experienced did little but terrify me. The vague brief combined with my own illness made the first two weeks of my new college life possibly two of the most stressful weeks of my However, I did manage to learn a lot from Fine Art, like how to loosen up and just mess around and see what happens and how to encorporate my own preferences (textiles) into a fine art context. Two weeks ago I would have said I made a huge mistake going to art school, but now I think I'm going to like it here....
