As I want to focus my Beyond Limits project on dreams, I thought I would watch one of my favourite films; Vanilla Sky. The film is layered with multiple narratives and blurring of fantasy and reality. To watch the film makes you feel as though you are in a dream yourself, with its non linear narrative
Yesterday I went to the Barbican Conservatory for Travelling Drawing Club drawing session. I’d never been to that part of the Barbican before but given my enthusiasm for nature and plants I had to go. And I had a lot of fun and took a lot of photographs of the overwhelmed interiors
The new brief for Creative Industry Practice is called Beyond Limits. It is an exciting project that enables us to think beyond and be imaginative in order to think of ways to extend/enhance the body. The outline within is very structured and permits us to pick a word for PURPOSE (for which I chose Reveal), MOOD (I selected surrealistic) and a way to IMPLEMENT (for which I decided on an art project).

Yesterday I went to the Wild Life Drawing, botanical drawing class and it was so much fun! Not only did I get to learn so much about the different types of plants we were drawing, but I also learnt about
In order to help us understand simple processes used to create animations, we got involved in a workshop in the studio that involved using William Kentridge’s technique (as seen in the video below)
Our new brief for the Local Universe studio is one I’m not very confident about. It focuses on moving image and how we can use this as well as digital processes to tell as story. I’ve never made an animation before and where the brief says it must be based on an existing story, I can see myself really
As one of my assessment criticisms was to move out of my comfort zone of doing linocut, I decided to approach this printed poster brief with a new technique; one I have used before many years ago but only
