Work Calendar

I’ve created this page to keep a track with the things I want to accomplish or complete. Books to read, experiments or work to complete, anything. I’m also going to be honest if I don’t get stuff done 🙂

I will probably update this week by week depending on what is relevant or if any new ideas come up so I can accommodate them in

February 27th – March 4th

  1. The Renaissance – Walter Pater
  2. New Media in the White Cube and Beyond – (Edited by) Christiane Paul
  3. Bertrand Russell – History of Western Philosophy (specific chapters)

The first two books I have began reading but not finished so I aim to finish these first before reading the philosophy book which is only an introduction text so I think this is a reasonable amount to get done.

March 5th – March 11th

Unfortunately I never got round to finishing Walter Pater and Christiane Pauls books however made good progress with them over the course of the week, also got some other to begin reading after I finish these two.

  1. The Renaissance – Walter Pater
  2. New Media in the White Cube and Beyond – (Edited by) Christiane Paul
  3. A Very Short Introduction to Plato – Julia Annas

March 12th – March 18th

Forgot to update this for that week. Basically I’ve given up on reading Walter Paters Renaissance for the moment as although it is an interesting book it seems a bit irrelevant at this moment in time. It describes several artists, writers, philosophers and other figures from the renaissance which may be useful later on, but isn’t making any contribution at this point in time.

Read about the power of myths quite a bit for this week and think that it is a route im going to explore in more detail.

March 19th – March 25th

I am going to re read Dionysus by W.F. Otto after rethinking about the ideas of myth, I am also going to try broaden the philosophy reading and try find some more interesting theories that I like.

Also I would like to do some experiments this week, I feel that I’ve been doing alot of research and it’s time to explore some ideas

Got the sound project to do for the 26th as well.

Books / other research materials / stuff to do:

  1. Dionysus: Myth and Cult: W.F. Otto. – read some of the chapters I wanted to
  2. Experiment with the animated gifs idea.

March 26th – April 1st

Had quite a slow week last week, never got to finish my sound project in time which I’ve still to do.

This week I want to continue with experimentation ideas, (it’s only the start of the week when im writing this so I’m not too sure what it is I’m planning on doing.)

End of the week – Continued with research and came up with several ideas for experiments and potentials artworks which I’ve uploaded pictures of. Been working with ideas mainly in my sketchbook at the moment.

  1. Dionysus: Myth and Cult: W.F. Otto

April 2nd – April 8th

This week I want to continue with coming up with ideas and possibly creating some mock up images on Photoshop, nothing to fancy, just to try and throw some stuff together to get a better idea of where I want to go.

Nothing else planned at this point

April 9th – April 15th

Was quite busy with work this week however I got to do a few experiments like the gif and the photoshopped images.

April 16th – April 22nd

Got some other stuff planned to continue with creating images in photoshop

April 23rd – April 29th

This week I’m going to try and write a bit more about what I’ve been doing as opposed to the one sentence updates for the last few weeks. With the Mid Point Review coming up I want to try and go through my site and try pick out the things that have interested me the most and which I want to continue to develop. I will do some reflection posts for this.

I also plan on working more with Photoshop for experiments and have found some artists that have caught my eye as I have been going through some books so plan on doing some more research on them.
