Over the two years of the M.F.A. course I propose to
work on rituals and ritual costumes.
Within this framework I intend to combine my knowledge
of photographic and printmaking processes and my knowledge
of fabrics and the sewing and designing of garments to
produce a number of works on chosen aspects of rituals.
In some cases the costume alone will be an adequate means
of presenting the idea. Images printed onto the
costume may be necessary, or the costume may require a
wearer to perform certain actions within it resulting in a
series of photo-etchings on the figure and the costume.
Other ideas may require a three-dimensional space and
sound resulting in a performance where body movements,
costumes and documentation in the form of a series of
photo-etchings play an important role.
At this stage I prefer not to outline specific works until
I begin work on each project. As a general rule, I write
rough notes on work, planning several months ahead. On
reading back over these notes I can see the development of
some, over a series of weeks and months, from a set of
vague ideas into a clear statement. Others may be
important to the resulting work, yet are only a step along
the way and have little value, as finished works as was
first intended.
Therefore, I propose to add to the section of my proposal
on specific works when each idea is fully developed.
