We have not had any coursework this week in terms of lectures but nonetheless I have been kept busy by reflecting on the feedback I received about my images for the Work in Progress Portfolio (WIPP), considering and drafting a Statement of Intent about my current work and thinking about anchoring quotations that form the basis for the contextualisation of my work in photographic practice.

This thinking will inform both my video presentation (due on 8 April) and thereafter my Critical Review of Practice (due on 29 April) which is intended to confirm and demonstrate that my practice is underpinned from “an informed and reflective position” and that I am able to position my work in historical, cultural and professional contexts.  I am also expected to reflect on my practice and develop a “critical self-awareness” within photography.

This is a daunting task in terms of its coverage and the need to confine my thinking and reflection to around five pages.  I am conscious I need to put pen to paper this week.  I have developed the storyline in my head and now need to commit my narrative to an outline and then start to draft the detail.

I have found in the past that committing my “To Do List” to these pages helps to focus my mind and improve my motivation to achieve them:

  • Produce storyboard for Critical Review of Practice
  • Pull together References for Critical Review of Practice
  • Review CRJ posts for first three weeks of Informing Contexts to remind myself of some of the theory and concepts we were introduced to
  • Read Object-Oriented Ontology – A New Theory of Everything (2018) by Graham Harman
  • Continue drafting slides for my Video Presentation
