I have applied to go on exchange next semester! Reykjavik, Rotterdam, Groningen and Dublin are the places I might end up going to. The art academy in Reykjavik is number one on my wish-list, and I sent them a printed version of my portfolio. I had been meaning to try out book-binding for quite some time , and decided to give it ago. The portfolio is cut with a great big machine we have in printmaking. It cuts through the entire book at once, saving me a loads of work and time! Then the book is simply glued together in the spine. Easy, and gives an almost perfect result!




The course I'm taking now is called Graphic Concrete. It's so different from what I usually do, which is great! We work in groups, and are going to make proposals for outdoor art pieces. If we are lucky, it might even be realized in the end. Anyhow, this is the first test my group made for one of our ideas - the intention is to have the image digitally printed onto glass, before we cast it into concrete blocks and integrate them at the site.
