30th Oct 2014 – Constellation five

This was a really exciting start to the morning, we looked at questioning and how as university students (and creative thinkers) we should always be questioning. We looked into how to question and research, in reference to our work so that our work can hold its meaning. But what I took from this most was that it is vitally important not to just use our own ideas to give our work relevance but to also look at what has passed and push forward ideas of the past. Mainly  helping us understand that the best artists and creators are normally about 10 years or more ahead of the rest of the world.

As there was not keynote lecture today we had a subject session instead. We discussed the activity of making and asked to think about our own way of working, as well as what is important to use while making. We looked at a number of artists, with a focus on their process of making and their thought processes.
