I realised I haven't blogged in a very long time! Like, a very long time, but guess what? My laptop has broken again; wooo! And Dan uses his for work and then in the evening we want to spend time together, so I don't get too much access to his laptop. But I've stolen it for a few minutes while he's reading!
I would like to share with you all, the climax of my Foundation year. On the 10th June, we had our final show exhibition, where we have our own display space to display your final outcomes a long with any other bits of work that are appropriate.
My final major project was on Natural Phenomenon, you can read through all my processes and stuff; including my statement of intent, reflective journal, contextual influences essay and evaluation....here! If you're interested you're very welcome to read it, if not I won't be offended...probably!
For my final outcome I created two dresses both inspired by the Northern Lights, and although they look very similar, there is a slight difference in the colours, one has green and yellow highlights to represent the more common Aurora Borealis, and the other green and purple, which is less common. I also did a photoshoot of the two dresses on a couple of my friends, Lauren and Rokiah ended up being quite a few peoples models. I decided to add light trails to the back of my final photograph to make it more visually interesting and because I had experimented with light trail photographs earlier in my project and some were so beautiful, I didn't want to waste them, I'm so proud of my final photo that it will be going up in mine and Dan's house at some point! I also included some of the samples I had some throughout my project in my exhibition space, because my tutors felt they were two strong not to include them.
I had a lovely evening at the private view of the exhibition, getting all dressed up, and Dan coming with me, we also met, my Dad, Mum and Kerry there, and we walked around the exhibition, drank wine and had a great time, and there was an after party afterwards; woo!
A couple of days after that I got my mark, which was all very quick, as I thought I'd have to wait a couple of weeks, but it turns out I got a MERIT; YAY!
In fact, it's taken me so long to write about all of this, that yesterday my place at university was confirmed! I am officially going to UNIVERSITY; aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!
So now that I officially have a place, finding somewhere to live is slightly more crucial! But it's going to be amazing!
So remember, each day, live a little, laugh a little and love a little. ♥
