I am Freya May, studying art in Edinburgh
For my final project I’m going to continue looking at memory as a theme. So far, I have been very drawn to water and the ocean to convey this. I’m interested in the symbolism of water in literature (as a cleansing force, linking to re-birth and cleansing from the past). I’d like to research this more and also look at water and any link it has to memories/the past in religion and different cultures.
I’d also like to explore other ways of working with the theme of memory. Rachel Whitbreads Holocaust memorial and Amie Dicke’s ‘After Goldschmitte’ are really interesting ways of looking at the past, creating a physical reminder of something that has happened in the past.
For the first 4/5 weeks of the project I plan to experiment with new materials and techniques. I’d like to try video. Also will be researching artists, art movements. Hopefully after this I will have a large amount of work to inspire my final piece.@5 days ago with 2 notes
