its been a busy week so far – a faster than sound at snape – not a bad one, it was interesting to see the wonderful Cynthia Millar and her Ondes Martenot again, although the visual side felt a little unconsidered and repetitive in the first half but it did improve in the second half with some almost exciting channel distortion from Rod Maclachlan. teaching at nuca has been around notions of ambition using images from Venice, exploring how management theory can be used in artistic reflective practice with a P.E.S.T analysis and practical advice on how to develop a context for your making.
the first teaching session at Camberwell saw 25 years of bookmaking – sequence, order, control, revelation, image generation, text, translation, narrative, 35 book structures and 225 images of bookness crammed into 4 hours of contact time. it was good afterwards to go to the private view of overdue an exciting exhibition in the library of the year 2 part-time students work and a chance to meet socially the new students.
looking forward to TED x on Saturday – highlights should be Modified Toy Orchestra who are really extraordinary and blew me away the last time i saw them and it should be great to hear Nitin Sawhney talk after seeing his many collaborations at snape, especially with Akram Kharn.
