Wow Marc,
Thanks for giving such full and positive feedback. We (the students,
michael and I) have spent the afternoon discussing the value of
"communities of practice" and various kinds of social media for learning
together and sharing ideas about work of this ilk. Your generous response
has demonstrated the whole deal perfectly: ))

I know the students here are going to take a little while to digest your
feedback and look at the links you sent through. But till then... thanks
from all here on the Digital Art and Design Practice degrees at Writtle

: ))))

Hi Liz & students at Writtle,

Hi LucyM,

Can I suggest smaller files as altrnative sizes for downloading?


This is a well-produced movie, I like the mixing of animation - the 
drawers opening and closing.

Even though this is already an accomplished piece of work, I feel that 
it needs a bit more edge, it can go further to communicate your ideas 
regarding what you mentioned on the blog.

For instance, imagine if you got rid of the smooth soundtrack and 
replaced it with sounds, such as the scraping of the face, rubbing of 
facepack onto cheeks and more...

Also, have look a read of The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, or 
at least look it up on wikipedia 

Don't bother with the latest film called Dorian, - have a look on 
Youtube to view a snippet of an earlier version which I think is much 

Picture of Dorian Gray 1945 Original Trailer


Female Icons

I have already posted this one by Jess Loseby, but it also fits here as well

and these 2:

Homemaker. Interview with Jean Finlay.

Kathy Acker

I just wanted to highight Kathy's method for writing her book 'Blood and 
Guts in High School'. Which is one of my favourite books of hers...

"In Blood and Guts in High School, Kathy Acker uses the technique of 
collage. She inserts letters, poems, drama scenes, dream visions and 
drawings. This creates a challenging text with a disturbed linearity. 
Acker freely admitted to using plagiarism in her work."

Adding different elements to coommunicate your idea can help greatly in 
creating an enriching piece...

Just thought I'd throw a net art piece in also by Shu lea Cheang

wishing you well.
