first day back after the break – a couple of good sessions with year 3 students at NUA - starting the briefing for their final unit and then the draft learning agreement workshop. there are some good ideas out there and I’m looking forward to seeing the results in 20 weeks time.

meanwhile I got to see 2001 at Aldeburgh cinema last night – quite wonderful - it was great to see the film as a form of seed – informing so much from Start Wars and obviously Moon, Interstellar and Gravity. But also people like Matthew Barney and his Cremaster cycle http://www.cremaster.net/ An oddly immersive film to see is The Congress http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1821641/ some of it based on The Futurological Congress by Stanisław Lem but a lot of it from itself! – it’s a little all over the place when watching with some huge linking gaps within the plotline but the film holds your attention enough that the conversation after manages to fill in any gaps, although after reading the plot on imbd I think maybe I missed a bit!
