Monday 7th, November – Sunday 13th, November
I started my reading week with the idea of relaxing and catching up with all three modules of this semester in general. During the summer holidays I noticed that it is important to have DO NOTHING kind of days and see those days as productive days because that time of mindfulness / mindlessness helps you to reset your mind and go back to your creative work with new and fresh state of self.
Documentation of days while I was practising the Art of Doing Nothing
During the reading week I made commitments with my colleagues to collaborate with them and spend a sufficient amount of time on these collaborated projects. I’m working as an actor/character in Sofia’s documentary. we did two days’ worth of work from 9 to 5 in the area of set building, costume making and shooting the establishing scenes for the documentary. I’m also working with Richard as a choreographer.
Documentation of my collaborations with other students on the course
I booked the CA project room space for Friday 9 to 5 but unfortunately, I was unable to do any experimentation on my self-led project since there were not enough lights to create more shadows. I went to the School of Art anyway and I used my booking for the CA projects room instead of wasting it. I went there with no plan at all and decided to do an old idea which I had during the summer of 2021 from my general IDEAS sketchbook. This work is untitled, meaningless, weird but liberating, freeing and refreshing at same time.
