Finally some free time, to write something on DA.
I've been away of DA for some time now. I've posted a journal about really getting back to DA in january... Well I've not really been really up to doing something on here since then. *fail*
Well you might guess I've been bussy and yes I have been VERY
busy. I've been so busy that it's so weird to me now to finally have some free time. I don't know how to spend it anymore or how I used to spend it. It's so strange I've been so stressed for all the deadlines of projects I "had" to finish that I don't know what it is to not work yourself to death.
Well I'm going to explain what happened the past two months. I don't describe this because of excuses, I want to describe it because I'm quite proud to tell what was going on the past two months.
So basicly I assigned to too many projects at once. It actually were too many, despite I actually made it to finish each of them proberly. It must seem weird because too would gently mean I couldn't finish them all. Well I say too, because some people were worrying about my well being, this might give an indication of how many projects and stuff I've been wirlpooled in.
not all projects are finished, but the big ones are.
These are three them.
in one year the students of Art&Design have to attend 4 periods. A period exists of following 4 to 6 workshops which of each will last 8 weeks. Also we have our theory and we have to participate in at least one project for the midday lessons. Unfortunately many lessons fell out, I didn't like this. Because you can't continue with the project you're working on. So if there were 2 lessons that fell out for a workshop, you had to fill it in 6 weeks which means basicly continueing at home or at school till it closes. This occured a lot, but I did finish every workshop with high grades. I will show some photo's of some final results later.
I also was assigned to make (at school) 6 mobile wallpaintings serving as background for a dance show. This project was huge, complex and had a very short deadline. Off course these are lessons you have to attend in groups. first I was the only one assigned and really I hoped for some people that could help. Because I thought everyone had there hands full with other projects and I first almost thought I had to decline later. but luckely there was somebody from class (I don't hint names since "privacy thingy") who volunteered immediately and there soon came a second and a third joining the team. It was a huge project and we also had to work a lot on times that we were actually free of school. Yet it was amazing to have some people helping that were so willing to get this job finished as I was. Despite the extra efford we had a very succesfull project going and the results were amazing. I will deffinitly post some pictures of the paintings we created.
In november there was the official first Wepsoup
please watch this video for understanding it's purpose: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAr-lw…
So I turned out to be one of the "lucky" ones that day, along with somebody else we won the first wepsoup to start an official exhibition.
My project requirements were to make 10 paintings based on landscapes of (well) known places in a specific area and a video that gets beamed in a loup while the exhibition is.
This project was completely independent and it did cost me a lot of work. I've calculated it and it took me for now 150+ hours to completely organise everything plus getting it done.
The exhibition starts this saturday and I'm extremely excited. Today we arranged the exhibition and it looks beautiful. I will show the picture of the works individually and of the exhbition it self later.
This were basicly the three things that I've worked on the past two to three months, I'm really proud of everything and I've never been so productive in my life. I did discover my personal bounderies here and I've learned a lot of them. Also if anyone reads this, do the same go look for projects and join them, they are stressfull and take a lot of work. But if you really believe in what you're doing it will pay off very well.
Unfortunately there were a lot of other things, small projects, researches, reports, etc. which are things not worth to mention here.
If you read this, thank you.
I hope I didn't bore you with my life.
Good luck and sincere greetings,
