MTF3B Wk12

Pleasure vs Form

Today's forum was an open discussion of the nature of this degree. It basically revolved around what people want to get out of the course and how things are limited by the need to ensure there will still be enough students to fund the course. It seemed as though people wanted more freedom to follow their individual interests and less rigidity to adhering to specific styles and prescribed learning.

Stephen emphasised the importance of understanding the aesthetic and artistic understanding being as important as the Practical learning, yet it seems that the aesthetic is too heavily dictated and therefore the creative freedom suffers.

David's point about needing a compositional focus was the pinnacle of the discussion. 1 to 1 mentoring is definitely required but he University doesn't like funding where they don't get a return.
