Second year is a very busy year. Much for structured as far as I can see. I have just gone through my notebook and have found a huge amount of content by way of lectures, seminars and workshops. We have hit the ground running. All is exciting and there is a great sense of purpose.
Trying to find out what postmodernism means is another issue entirely. We are required to submit a 2000 word essay on how postmodernism and modernism affects our studio practice. A tough one to get into but on the upside by the end of it, I will, along with my contemporaries, have a far better idea of where our particular practice lies in the art world.
As regards my own studio practice it is going well. I share a studio with some nine others - the number varies depending on how many full-term Stage 2 Painting students are in and how many part-time BA students come in for their allotted days. It tends to be a very focussed and calm working environment with a few breaks for shared tea/coffee and chats which is grand.
My space, although not large is mine! I have a locked cabinet and a large table and three walls to hang things on. The latter being more promising in theory than in practice as the panels do not submit to either blu tack or panel pins readily.
