Week-9-Coursework

This week had a 1-2-1 With Dr. Steph. Discussed elements of the FMP. Was advised to ‘Think forward” about the upcoming project and how to think and work in-terms of something that has not happened as yet. By experimenting the work begins to form the concept in terms of practical work. I am working on the project every single day in one form or another, whether its creating/building a new image, making photographs, or planning the gallery or space exhibit.

Dr. Steph recommended that I look at the work Hamish Fulton. ‘the walking artist’ because he uses text with image. This has become very important to me as I feel it’s vital to get the message across, however without being too literal, the audience has to figure part of it out for themselves.

Week-9-Contextual Research

This week, looked at the work of Hamish Fulton, ‘the walking artist’.  One of his quotes I like is: “If in doubt, keep walking.” 1  Churchill who also supposedly said: “If going through hell, keep going.”  (there is not citation to this quote)2  however it is generally attributed to him. I presume that no matter what happens eventually one can walk one’s way out of it, and I think it’s a good thought to have when going through difficult creative, as well as other times.  I have always like quotes, so having a quote associated with my images come naturally, and I would like to capitalize off this for my FMP.
