Moving on....

Since my last post many things have happened and I'm happy to say I was able to submit my exam essay and my photographic exam paper in time for the deadline at LCC.

I waited on the results not knowing what I would receive as it was such a difficult time due to seeing my friend pass away so soon.

One morning I awoke and picked up my iPad and just clicked on my emails and saw a email from the university and instantly I opened it, there was a link enclosed which you had to click on which took you to another page within the University network, I couldn't log in quick enough and when I did I was somewhat amazed and deeply encouraged with a B+ for my photographic exam and a C+ for my essay.  I was happy and content as a few weeks prior I though I'd not be submitting as everything was too much so this is quite amazing considering.

The following week I had a one-to-one with Paul Lowe as to my practical exam the photographic one and he praised my work he loved it and said he'd never seen a story like this before he said he was deeply moved and wanted to see it develop into a bigger body of work.

So I am continuing with this project.  We had a months break from studying and then back to work.
We are now working on a collab project which is basically working alongside someone else and doing a documentary on the subject matter.  Also we are doing another project called 're-think' in which I'm carrying over my "Middle Land" project.

Since starting back on these projects the 're-think' one has been okay but slow moving but the collab one has been difficult.  Very time consuming and at times I feel like it's not going anywhere.  Quite simply I would love to capture sound waves as a deaf person how does sound travel etc and many things that go with how one actually hears.  To make the invisible, visible is something I'd love to explore deeper and to capture sound in motion.  That is my goal so I"m seeking out a Doctor in Physics to do with sound and I"m not sure if that will happen.  I've been in contact with a friend who is a retired surgeon from Glasgow and he's trying to get me access to work alongside someone in that area of research.

I am still waiting.
