Thoughts turning toward the MA – the students exhibition

I saw this interesting post from one of the current students just finishing their MA Fine Art Digital at Camberwell College of Arts today (link). The post was interesting for a number of reasons: it provided encouragement about the journey I am about to embark on but it also provided a flavour of the range of work and the collective nature of putting on an exhibition.

Indeed this collective nature contrasts sharply with my photographic practice. I had not been aware of this prior to participating in the [(6)] exhibition (link) the fact that most of my work was carried out alone appeared to be part of the nature of the photographic/artistic activity. Yet this was incorrect. If one examines the whole workflow process then there is much scope for collective participation and interaction. For example, my work has involved discussing concepts, approaches and influences; receiving comments on early drafts; discussing production values and, of course, putting on the exhibition.

Maybe this is what I intuitively wanted from my MA – a reference group of colleagues with common goals. I’m eager to get started now.
