Changing Direction into Context and Narrative
I know it’s not best to swap horses mid-stream but I’ve taken the plunge! I’d been struggling with DPP since last November – firstly due to my personal situation and then because I almost completely lost the art of focus/concentration. I did complete the first Assignment in May and got really excellent feedback with complimentary and supportive comments from my tutor. However, it just didn’t seem enough to push me on.
The catalyst occurred last week. I’d received an invite to the private view of [(6)] Personal Explorations in Photography – the Exhibition in Sheffield by 6 OCA students. At first I’d decided I wouldn’t go because of the distance to travel and the need to stay overnight as the view was in the early evening. It stayed in my mind though and I had this sudden urgent need to go there. All arrangements made and then the second thought came into my head that I should change Modules and do the new Context & Narrative instead. The transfer went very smoothly and I requested to continue with the same tutor.
Here I am then, on the start of something new. I feel so positive about it that this video really mirrored my mood.
