The project I was working on for my application to Falmouth required quite a few pieces of work. I wanted to share with you my two final pieces:
NB: UPDATE. As Tim B nicely pointed out in the comment section, a bit more info was needed on this project. I think I was hesitant to explain as it actually became rather personal for me. The idea of the project was to create a project based on our interpretation of the words 'My Space'.
As I explained in the comment section, this has been non existent and blurry over the last 2 years. I have lived with the mr, not so much out of choice sadly, and everything has been shared with him. We have lived with either of our mums, in their houses, driving a car that we shared, living in his room, sleeping on his bed. Or I have been in hostels, clearly not mine, or at University in halls that I shared with 33 other girls. Clearly a temporary thing, and a room that has been and will continue to be passed on. It was not my room, and never really was. My childhood home was being rented out to others, and when my cat died in the spring last year, I felt that officially I could move on from that house, as we had, and now the last tie to that house had also moved on. So the project stirred some emotions for me. And I honestly could only think of my space as being non existent and therefore of what non existence was. It was blurry. It was dark. It was confusing. This is all I drew for the project. But obviously I couldn't just make dark blurry and confusing into a final piece. So I photographed this with the land of Cornwall. The one home and space I really have. I photographed them through the lens of another camera to make them even blurrier and smaller, and to represent the feeling of it not being mine. I hope this explains the images further, and also gives you an insight into my last year.
I also want to add that happily, when I recently made the decision to stay in England permanently and not return to Canada, that everything lifted. All the pressure and sadness. I no longer cared, I was able to be at home for longer than 3 months at a time, and that was all that mattered. I am home.
P.S I heard over the weekend that I got an interview for the course that I applied for with this project! YAY! :)
