View from my hospital window. After over a month’s hiatus from the MA, the new module has begun. During the time away I have had major surgery to remove my non-functioning left kidney after almost a year of constant pain.
Whilst recovering from surgery I received my marks and feedback on my graded assignments from the P+P module. I haven’t had much head space to reflect on this until now, but shall attempt to do so now, by sharing the feedback and adding relevant web links and thoughts (as well as my presentation feedback).

I had my first 1-2-1 tutorial with Gary McLeod on Friday to discuss my project, my work in progress (WIP) portfolio and my future research proposal.
This week we all split up into pairs and set creative briefs for each other to work on throughout the week. (Using inspiration from this week’s reading/research.) I paired up with Gail, who set me the following brief: “Using psychogeographical techniques, go on a dérive with no final destination only time. Your time limit is […]
This week we were asked to consider the photograph in relation to other disciplines and subjects. I find the links between science and photography to particularly fascinating. In my day to day life at work, I am surrounded by plant biologists and biochemists who rely heavily on photo microscopy, as well as macro photography more generally.
This week we were asked to think away from photography, and find and share a piece of work that has some kind of link to our own practice, or research interests. Here is what I chose to share.
This week we were asked to reflect on our contributions (and those of our peers) in both the forums and webinars (as well as our notes from presentations, further reading and independent research) and consider the concepts and ideas discussed. Here are my thoughts so far.
For this task, we were asked to share three of our images relating to this week’s theme (‘The Global Image’). We then met in a group webinar and took it in turns to present our work, articulate our ideas, and give and receive feedback from our tutor and peers. Whilst contemplating the concept of the […]
