How have the events over the past year affected your work?
In some ways, having to work from home has been useful; I’ve had to think practically in terms of what can be accomplished from my room, without much in the way of space or equipment. I think in some cases, constrictions like this are helpful - otherwise I can be easily overwhelmed by possibilities, and it can be difficult to formulate a strong concept or sense of purpose. But it has been challenging working and living in the same limited space, I’ve missed being surrounded by classmates in the studios.
I have really talented coursemates who make such interesting things. I really value being surrounded by others and seeing what they produce. It excites me and it’s great to work with people you admire.
