"Make stuff you believe in." -Tony Brook
"Picasso was in a park when a woman approached him and asked him to draw a portrait of her. Picasso agreed and quickly sketches her. After handing the sketch to her, she is pleased with the likeness and asks how much she owed to him. Picasso replied $5,000. The woman screamed “but it took you only five minutes”. No, madam, it took me all my life, replied Picasso."
i. The beginning of 2014 brought on the commencement of the UCUK program which I have been experiencing for the second time from a new point of view. Luckily for me, the binary relationship you see in most academic classrooms does not exist during critiques. Design education does not rely on the input of a single professor but rather, the collaboration of an entire creative classroom and so it does not feel much different than when I was a student here; I’m still trying to convince a room full of people I’ve got a clue.
ii. I have been hesitantly continuing my study of time…I guess if this project ever ended it wouldn’t really be about time, anyway. Results?TBC, maybe.
iii. Well technically, I got a raise. Work raise = pay raise, right? Am now bringing out burgers by the hundreds in order to sustain my humble London lifestyle. This could be a great New York Times comic about the significance of a bachelor’s degree…
