Finally, I have found the time to write a long overdue update on my work, or as I like to put it, “what I’ve been up to for the past six months” (this also reads well as “why you may not have heard from me in half a year”).
I figured it was about time I put out into the world what I am spending the next year dedicated to – my Master’s Project. My program at York offers a unique option to produce a Project rather than a Thesis or Major Research Paper. The project option is as wide-ranging as it sounds – my friends and fellow cohort are producing installations, animations, short documentaries, moving-image pieces, video games, and websites. The idea of creating a project was what attracted me to the program in the first place – as it offers a challenge I haven’t attempted yet in my academic career. A project considers the value of research through the act of “making” and allows for a chance to display and celebrate academic work displayed through non-traditional means.
