We have been given the chance to do a mini Instagram exhibition to promote the exhibition. One of the technicians has said for anyone who wants to, we can send him some of our images and statement about my work. I think it is a really good idea to get our work out there. And let people know the sort of work they will be seeing. And Instagram is a great way of doing it.
It also looks good for the photography course and page that shows the work us third years are making. It also looks good for the other years to see what they are going to do when it get’s to their third year. Another group it looks good for is potential students, that they have a page to look up and see what they can do if they came here.
This has been one of the most tedious thing’s this year and I will be glad when it’s over!! I haven’t been to happy about feeling like I have to constantly hint, nagg and bug family and friends to show how much they love me and give me money haha. I have managed to get a few donations together from family. And have bribed them with as well as the free print we do for certain donations. I have offered to do prints from my work as part of it. Knowing my family have been wanting some of my work.
I do understand the fund raising was essential I have just hated how last minute it has all felt.
I now have 1 month and a day till the final submission. It is odd to think this is the final push for university, and the fun part that my to do list no matter how much I do it doesn’t seem to want to go down. I still have a lot to consider for my final work and to get it ready for the exhibition. There are some parts of my work that I will be leaving for another couple of weeks to complete.
The CRS (critical reflective summary) which I have two of will be getting done pretty much last minute. As I feel how can I reflect on all my work If I am still adding work in. Although I will be adding the finishing touches to my work after I have completed the CRS I want to essentially done bar a bit of house work around the edges.
This week I am looking to get my book sequence finalised and send off for my photo book. This will be a few late nights in the library for me, trying to balance work with extra shifts and my uni work has been proving both entertaining and tiring. I just have to keep reminding myself that it is almost the end, and this time next year I will be missing uni terribly.
But overall it is all slowly coming together and I feel good about my work this year which does make a change. And have actually enjoyed using this blog as a way of doing my work! It has been different from what we are use to which has made a change. And makes me wanna keep blogging about things after uni…
Last week saw our last lesson of uni, we got all the key dates and information we need to get us to the big deadline. It was an odd sort of lesson, every one is so tired from trying to get work done, but also excited we are almost there and finally was a slight hint of sadness.
I think as much as we will be so glad for no more deadlines, the idea the last three to four years is coming to an end and we have to think about what is next has settled in. We have been given all dates we need. And more work added to the ever so long to do list, although we knew it was coming. Two more critical reflective summaries to complete. But on the plus side we also have so many dates to look forward too, we have all the time to celebrate after. With final exhibition to show off all our hard work then graduation the month after, we have a good way of finishing and ending on a high note.
We finished the tutorial with getting a last photo of us all together…
