2017 November: Fake Storytelling

Week 1 Struggles My psychological turmoil is only worsening I’m afraid, and totally eclipsing any sort of idea of ‘work’; I scarcely know what that word means anymore. Where I find I am now incapable of doing even certain simple tasks without breaking down, there are still some circumstances in which I can learn something … Continue reading 2017 November: Fake Storytelling

2017 October: Being Daring by Accident

Practice Event 2017 (MA interim group exhibition): Ghost Writing   “Here K moonlights as a novelist. In her novel she is tethering out of the text a being; some sort of agent. Think of the novel then as a sort of textual artificial intelligence incubator, where she is cooking up a person. As with any … Continue reading 2017 October: Being Daring by Accident

2017 August: Resisting the Dissipation of Energy

Anomaline I am at a comforting impasse with Meredith (novel).

I wondered that this may be … Continue reading 2017 July: Reading Huysmans and Woolf

2017 June: A Pep-talk to Self

I can’t help but cringe a little that I haven’t written in my art journal all year. Aside from being a little anal about consistency, it also worries me that working on or thinking about my art practice should instil in me such anxiety that returning to my notebooks (an activity traditionally soothing for me) … Continue reading 2017 June: A Pep-talk to Self

2017 February: Shooting Art to Artillery

In November I began collaborating with a fellow student, who is also my boyfriend, on a short film he applied for through Central Saint Martins. After some brainstorming, we put together a film pitch and presented it to a panel representing CSM, NOWNESS, and Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy. Remarkably, we got the funding to make … Continue reading 2017 February: Shooting Art to Artillery
