This weekend started with my last ever event at uni – the Degree Show. For the past three years I have been alternating between excitement and fear about this day. Because of my recent return from home, my mind wasn’t fully there up until Friday morning when I saw the exhibition all prepared, cleared up, polished and awaiting crowds of people. The door officially opened at 6pm but various ‘important people’ were allowed in earlier so we were strongly advised to hang around the whole day. And so we did.
Throughout the day there was excitement, boredom ,and fear mixed in the air but also the special feeling of completeness. A three year episode of our lives was ending and as much as we tried to speed it up, we tried to stop it there and then.
(Excuse the quality of photos, my little camera let me down.)
At the beginning of the evening I wondered if I’d have enough memory on my camera but as it happens I forgot about taking photos in the whirl of events, chatter & drinks. High on life.
I spent Saturday slowly recovering while clearing up my studio space at home and crying when finishing The Hour series ;(
Sunday was finally spent in the sun with Mr. J, just chilling, as it should be.
Today is bank holiday Monday and I can’t help but wonder that soon this day might gain some significance to me.. Unfortunately and hopefully at the same time…
The Central Saint Martins Degree Show is on till Wednesday evening so check it out if you are in London and crave a bit of a creative spirit.
