Following a brief discussion about the presentation of each others work in members learning logs, I have decided just to outline the contributions of others that I may find useful on my own project. Suffice to say, the members produced a range of interesting and varied work. As a reminder only, I have listed below who presented and the topic of the presentation.
Steve – Holodeck Project for the Real or Fake assignment in DPP.
Amano – No way home as a Photography with text assignment for Landscape
Holly – an assignment on Chronic Pain (perhaps C&N I’m not sure)
Catherine – Putting yourself in the picture, triptychs of herself in the landscape
Vicky – Presented her 50 words for women project which she has now finished and discussed with us her ideas for Putting herself in the picture which involves issues that she has to deal with each day
Eddy – presented a personal project (motivated by Sharon), expressing his feelings about his home situation and his wife’s illness. I can empathise with his situation, having been there. I’m not sure I would have been able undertake such a project myself.
Documentary Assignment 5 – Personal Project
As detailed elsewhere, I took along my plans for the 41 mile walk from Bordon to Bognor Regis, some sample images and the “Down Outings” journal that we made as a family in the 1950’s. John made a suggestion about writing a journal of the walk and the feelings I had as I progressed on the route. Everyone was fascinated by the book and Sharon suggested that I could present the project in a similar way to the original, perhaps as a hand made book which looked it. At this stage, I am still not sure of the form the project will take and what is motivating it beyond the original idea. Until I have experienced the walk and been to see Richard Long’s Time and Space exhibition in Bristol next month, I am letting ideas wash over me.
At this meeting we, as a group said our farewells to Sharon and wished her luck with her new job and her future work. There was no-one who wasn’t sorry to see her go. We have all received so much support from her, both as a tutor and a mentor to the group. Thanks Sharon!
