I met with my first supervisor today albeit for a short, rather rushed meeting, as I was also attending and presenting at the Arts and Humanities Postgraduate Symposium:  Dwelling in Extremis.  I was very grateful for her support later in the day as she attended my presentation.

I spoke to her about the time spent preparing two presentations in early May – the first to MFA students about my work and the second, referred to above, entitled Paradox, Being and Dwelling.  I had also continued with my writing about contemporary practice.  We talked about the approach I planned to take for this chapter and my supervisor was content at this stage to see how it will work in practice.  She confirmed that notwithstanding the challenges in writing that I was in a good place for this stage of my PhD.

We spoke briefly again about the list of potential external examiners for my viva voce examination and she agreed to contact two colleagues that might have suggestions as to who might be appropriate.

We reviewed some black and white images I had taken in March and presented in Notes and Images from a Small Island (Practice 9 Day 6).  She loved the reflections but suggested that the images may be better served in colour rather than monochrome.  She also noted that the images gave the impression of being pixelated but in fact it was the combination of slow shutter speeds and the use of multiple exposure techniques.  I agreed to have a look at this and also to produce the images in colour for our next meeting.
