This sprint is the summation of UA1. Aims are to a) submit UA1 assessment, and, b) to experiment with some different approaches to the chairs in search of a different, resonant, and more contemporary stylistic approach. c) To attend (and then evaluate) a four-day course of Atelier portrait painting with the aim of appraising where my current technique falls in relation to that.
After working in the computer industry and spending some years conducting research into cinema and digital media, I became convinced that the innovative qualities of videogames as participatory media required closer academic attention. As such I have spent most of my career championing the inclusion of games within the academy, and arguing for games as an art form, a role I continue as a Professor at Falmouth University. Alongside this, and my scholarly work on the Gothic, I also maintain, in various forms, a visual art practice. This blog comes out of enrolling on the MA Fine Art degree programme at Central Sr Martins. It is mainly a record of my reflections on the work that I have undertaken for the degree. After having written about folk horror in games and cinema as an academic, this blog will focus on folk horror as a focus for my art practice.View all of tanyakrzywinskablog's posts.
