Thesis Paper! Oh no!
Tomorrow my first draft of my thesis paper is due, and even though it's supposed to be 8-10 pages mine currently hits about 2.5. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't struggling. My biggest problem is I don't know what is actually revelant to my point. I could go on and on about how I'm a neat freak and that means a lot to my studio practice, but I don't think my thesis panel will really care too much about that. So now I'm stuck talking about other artists I've looked at and why I relate to them. Thing is, I try really hard to not be anything like the artists I admire. I want to understand them and appreciate them but not imitate them. Bottom line is, they don't relate to my work very much. I can talk about my reading, but then things get really really nerdy. I can talk about how I've read about typography a lot, but I'm not a graphic designer. I'm kinda stuck.
I hope the next time I write I'll have a better idea of where I'm going and maybe more that 2.5 pages written.
I'm a senior Multidisciplinary major here at Uarts and I focus mainly on Sculpture. I really enjoy working in the woodshop and metal shop, but most of my work is some combination of every material I can get my hands on. In my spare time I love watching movies with friends and playing video games. I like experimenting with cooking and using friends and family as guinea pigs.
