Ok since, I am undertaking a masters degree and pretty much everything I do is assesable in someway I have set up a tumblr page as a sort of visual/audio diary of what I have been up to. This does not mean I am abandoning this by any stretch of the imagination, however it does mean I need to consider what role this page fills.
Yes it does exist as an archive of previous work and I want it to remain significant so I will need to update it from time to time to include things that are more significant.
So if the tumblr page is like a visual diary or sketch/scrap book then this is more like my public studio, not everything is on show but it houses important developments in my practice.
The tumblr site if you are interested in looking into my sketch book is vcamca14
This brings me to the next point. I have as you may notice been spending significant amounts of my energies on Photography. I think I have doing this because I sense that it is problematic in some way that has scope for exploration. It has been bugging me as people begin to refer to my practice as photographic one which it is not. Rather it is a practice that includes photography. I had a conversation recently with a friend who is a photographer and had that epiphany moment where I was talking about what I have been doing with the coffee development etc, and realised that it doesn't really mean anything other than being something to obsess over and make fairly empty images. This does not mean I will stop this exploration, it is not what I was thinking it was. I am not sure what is next for it at the moment.
Another thing to talk about briefly and so I can put some pictures up is focus. So I have been finding it incredibly hard to have any kind of sustained focus of late and I could blame the plethora of things to distract myself with but I think the honest reason would have to be lack of discipline. So I have been attempting to maintain discipline through initially meditation and now more so through Drawing, which of course is in its self a form of meditation.
