In 3D we doing doing the clay again. I really like working in clay, as it’s kind of therapeutic and I like building up a three dimensional shape. Anyway, one of my classmates has moved onto the next step of the mould, and it looks ammmmmmmmazing. It involves throwing plaster onto the clay, which really is enough to keep me happy. (although probably not the cleaners – they probably already hate the art department anyway) So I can’t wait to get my clay piece finished now 🙂
I also filmed Amy in our next class, I felt kind of awkward at first but I enjoyed it after I got into the swing of things.
I got my ned page all finished up and then began writing “neddy” type things on top like “pure mad mental” to make it look like the page had been graffitied all over.

I then did two larger scale tests both backgrounds were made to look like a brick wall, except one was in ink –
The other in acrylic –
In class, someone had spare newspapers from Edinburgh, and so I took out the more positive stories and glued them in almost like a scrapbook. I then added some brown ink to give the appearance of age, to show these are long lasting marks that have been left.
Today we were given a task that is mostly to do with finding our pathway. This task involves putting down our art heroes, listing our skills and what skills we would like to develop in the future. This task has made me think more seriously on what my pathway is, and when I was thinking of my art heroes, they were mostly installation artists, with a couple of painters. I have always been slightly confused as to where I want to take my art, but I think this task showed me, that it is definitely one of these two. The task has to be completed for the next class, which is in a fortnight, because of the October break, so I have plenty of time to think about it.
