MA in Photography, Falmouth University, Module 3, Surfaces and Strategies, Week 2
I have launched into a round of exciting opportunities to be active in terms or presenting my work and also attending events. This is not about producing work, but rather receiving feedback and comments about my work.
Here is a short summary;
Redeye Hothouse Sheffield 2017 – Fig 1
This is an opportunity to present with 12 other emerging artists hosted by Redeye and compered by Paul Herrmann. I will make notes of as many of the other presentations as possible.
The State of Photography Symposium – Fig 2
This is 6 days on from Hothouse and will be a well attended and full day of work review; I am a delegate not a presenter, however I have written to Edgar Martins to ask for a few minutes to discus his work, and mine, as his practice is an influence on my work. I have written about his work on my CRJ.
The Proposal – Fig 3
This is a new local initiative driven my local independent gallery, Grand Union. The event will require a small payment to attend, that cumulated fund then is presented to the ‘winning’ artist’s proposal. A form of small scale crown funding which will be a new experience simply to partake an observe.
FlakPhoto Network – Fig 4
This related to potential practice beyond the conclusion of Module 3, however it demonstrates how I need to plan a long way ahead for shoots. In this case I am in Boston MA for 5 days and hope to meet people and visit building that I can then shoot. Watch this space (no responses to date!).
Photocafe; Open Call – Fig 5
This is an opportunity driven application I made – the theme is ‘ground shifting under your feet’ – so my work on buildings going or being repurposed is appropriate. I have not yet heard back from the curator.
