Today I had a proper look around the Duncan of Jordanstone Degree Show and was really impressed with what I saw. I attended the opening on Friday night, however I spent most of my time catching up with people from my year so it was good to take the day to really appreciate everything properly. There’s a nice variety of work (something I think DJCAD really encourages) and I really enjoyed visiting without any expectations. As I mentioned in a previous post, for the past few years I’ve been pretty aware of what’s going on in the art school in preparation for the Degree Show. As a result I don’t feel I appreciated the work as much as I should have, so it was nice to visit the show as an outsider. The only thing I found strange was that I found myself walking into spaces and expecting to see the work that was displayed there last year. I guess it was a hint of nostalgia…
(My Degree Show space was inside the windows on the left-hand side & the printmaking department is the row of windows below.)
This was meant to be posted around Easter, but I totally forgot(oops!). I mainly associate Burntisland links with Easter as my family used to roll our eggs there when I was little(though down the other side of the hill).
The first photo was taken the same day as the photograph I posted from Burntisland a few days ago and the second is a picture of me taken there around 20(?)years ago. We used to have to race after our eggs so that my uncle’s dog wouldn’t get there first and my gran would bring a little salt shaker from the house to season our eggs.
