I’m really pleased with my space for the degree show.
Fun fact about me – I have no sense of measurement what so ever. I cannot look at something and say how wide it is or how tall. It is completely beyond my capabilities.
That being said, I think I envisioned my layout really well. Last week it got to the point that I knew what I wanted to have in my space, but I couldn’t images how it would fit, because again, I have no sense of measurement, or spacial awareness.
My space looked small to me because I’d been sat there for most of this year and had managed to cramp it with the amount of work and junk I had on my table. Then everything was cleared and there was a ‘oh no, look how much space I have to fill’. However, like goldilocks and that damn porridge, it was actually just right. Everything has fit perfectly. There’s a good amount of white spaced mixed in with the display pieces and my work, and it just generally looks sick. Like really flipping cool. Like how did I pull off this level of coolness. Damn. I’m just so proud of how it looks and how I’ve made it to the end having made something I really loved, and loved every minute of making!
I’m really pleased.
You should come see it in person, it looks so much better. (Just saying)
This week was the start of the buddy system. Thankfully I’ve managed to get almost everything done before now. All my samples have been made, overlocked and headed. My garments have been created. My sketchbook and research book are all up to date and bursting at the seams. I even got to university super early on Monday (only because I wanted a lift instead of getting the bus) and had time to fill and sand down the walls in my space. The only thing I needed doing was having my space painted white, which my buddy(ies) did amazingly. Not a drip on the floor, none of the filler could be seen. And it was all done super quickly. I’m pretty sure it took me longer than that when I was a buddy, but I’m not complaining, Daisy and Sonya have made my life juts that much more easier. So much easier intact that yesterday I was able to paint my motif onto the wall ready for putting up my display today. HUZZAH!
Earlier this week the plan for the degree show layout came back, which resulting in some feng shui-ing of my original plan. Mostly just so I have a solid plan to work from and am not winging it on the one day i’ll be able to get reinforcements to help me make my display amazing!
