I’m really looking forward to this section of the course as I love thinking about the way language and words operate, surprise us, evolve over time and in (or out of) context. I read (or listen to audio versions of) many different literary genres and forms, and I also spend a lot of time writing. Mostly my writing is personal, but I’ve also worked as a professional writer, dabbled in blogging, and use text in drawings. This course has already given me many ideas for how I could combine visual arts with personal texts (many already written) in future exhibitions. I’m dreaming big!
