Venice

Two people from our year have been offered an opportunity to work at the Venice Biennalle for a month in 2017. This involves working alongside the prestigious Scottish artist Rachel McLean. My application:   I first encountered Rachel MacLean last year and I, endearingly, described her videos and photography as garish, almost manic. Her work is […]

update 5/6/16

It’s just occurred to me that I haven’t blogged since my portfolio hand-in date. Things I wish for my small but dedicated following (that’s right mum, you) to know: I obtained a grade B for my body of artwork that I submitted I obtained an A for the two essays I submitted (goddammit) I’m currently […]

No longer *that* Basic 14/04

So maybe I over-exaggerated. It’s been a whole *wow* two months since, in my self-loathing I wrote that ‘I’ll never be a real Wah Wah’ article. I’ll be real with you, loyal reader.

Basic 28/2

I wonder if I’d still be playing music if I hadn’t met the Wah Wahs. I wonder how different my life would be – what would I be doing right now instead of writing about them? Probably sleeping, it’s pretty late. I’ve had an crazy weekend and I’m in desperate need of a day off. On Friday we […]

Paris

14/11/2016 Yesterday, people were killed throughout Paris in places of relaxation and entertainment. Today, it is impossible for me to think about anything except for that; there’s nothing else I can do apart from think, and feel. I don’t think that today is a day for analysing or for figuring out why people are the […]
