Been very quiet again on the blog front....I'm back at Uni again and trying to get moving with my dissertation and major project research. Neither have been defined yet, which in part is perhaps a bit worrying but they will both relate to archives in some way.

I just came across the artist Zoe Croshner and her new work exhibited at MOMA on the archives of Michelle Dubois so I want to look into her work a bit more...partly why I'm writing this blog so I don't forget her name. I have a feeling this could well be helpful for for my dissertation and may also give me some ideas for my project.

For my major project I want to do something with the contents of this box - which contain old family photos on my father's side of the family. So I'm starting to sort through the contents. It's all a bit daunting as there is so much content it's hard to know where to start. So I've started by trying to categorise them and I'm making connections between times and incidents that were (probably) not previously connected, and then try out some possible sequences, edits. My next job is to scan some of the photographs and try and work with them flat. Quite what will evolve from this, who knows...
