DJCAD Fine Art Degree Show 2015

The yearly Dundee DJCAD Degree show is always so fun, full of inspiration and a great, lively atmosphere. This year I was in it, as a model for Kirsty Dalton. It was an awesome experience and I felt really badass in that ensemble. :) Her prints and installation with beautiful patina were striking and I loved the re-used scrim for the costumes.

I liked a lot of stuff, but couldnt take my own pictures, So I foraged for some pics of the stuff that stood out to me on my walk around the fine art and APCP galleries.

The Circle

I have been looking at circular forms recently. An enjoyable read about circles is The Discovery of The Circle by Bruno Munari, a seemingly out of print book now (I used the Duncan of Jordanstone library). I believe you can download it for kindle, though.

I admire the infinite, cyclical, and symbolic nature of circles, and how they are found everywhere in nature. From water and tree rings to atomic structures, to planets and gravitational forces... there is a lot to look at and think about.

Anyway, I had a quick visual search looking at circles, to put together some more inspiration...
