straight into work after a good break was something to be anticipated with excitement – so a day at Camberwell looking at the students work within the context of their proposals had to be a good day – there were some exciting ideas around the table with the possibility of developing really exciting projects.

a full day at NUCA working with the surface design first years – a whole day of exploring cutting – tried to get the students to look at the cut as a conceptual concept - developing a visual language with the cut which would then enable you to ‘talk’ using a scalpel.
i had created an extensive powerpoint which presented a range of practitioners and their making but focused on the act of understanding cutting and then from that ‘products’ would come depending on materials and scale – lighting, seating accessories, clothes etc.
but of course it has to start with Lucio Fontana.
