after the break from teaching and a summer focusing on nano technology, rethinking my role in education and family it was strangely warming to be back. A hectic week of dealing with the nervous and the strong-willed - NUA is all about learning agreements and the close future of leaving for the 'real world' - the what next. Camberwell saw a great day with symposium 1 where the students share their past and consider the future while we project our roles and consider how we think they will engage with the course we have built. As ever I am struck by the wonderful place that art school is and the wide ranging conversations that can happen if we let the systems that are put in place fade to the background and we focus on the role of serious play.
meanwhile the date is set and the invitation is out – the Nano Art
collaboration I’ve been involved in will be presented at the Cambridge Festival
of Ideas - Saturday 31 October: 2:00pm - 4:30pm at the Wolfson Lecture Theatre,
Department of Chemistry, Lensfield Road, Cambridge. http://www.festivalofideas.cam.ac.uk/events/nanoart-perceiving-smallest-scales
come along - if anything else it will be a journey into the unknown with some
extraordinary pictures! and finally - I know that I'm a little late but managed to catch up with Boyhood - a truly heart moving story - somehow about getting through it, this life, in some way......whatever that means http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1065073/
