the end is where we start from

It is an odd place to be at the beginning of the end, the last term, of a journey for me that has taken nearly a decade. Yet there is much to do and accomplish this term. I am surprisingly calm even in the face of an overwhelming amount needing to get done.

My thesis paper needs to be researched and written because I have changed my materials and the presentation of my work. This was necessary. I could have chosen an easier route, stayed with photography as the most appropriate medium for the expression of this body of work. But I found that by using objects and manipulating them I am able to express fully what I need to say. I will to continue to explore and create additional pieces in order to come to my final exhibition installation.

It is a good place to be.
