1st Year Theme: 'The Self' (Jan 2015)


'The Mirror' by Adrianna Deron c.

The self-portrait is always, in some respects, a mirror image. Through this assigned theme, notions of ‘the self’ are considered, explored and re-examined. First year students have adopted several creative and conceptual approaches relating to this theme and produced some engaging and thought-provoking work befitting the assigned task. Some are intimate and introspective accounts - conveying inner and private worlds through self-representation. Others use the task as an opportunity to perform and express an inner state. Here, issues relating to identity, morality and the body are addressed. Other work produced articulates self-affirming notions of self through relationships and family connections. What is presented, in this selection, is a broad expression of students’ present and past experiences, perspectives and perceptions. Well done to all.

'RENDERING SPACE' | THOMAS STREET (Nov 2014)


“Learn to see specific locale through the senses, moving beyond our dependency on sight alone to understand place as a series of sensory experiences…. Return, revisit, multiple times. Each time return with a new and more focused intention.” - Roberley Bell

Any given space is measurable and limited, but the possibilities of expression within that space are immeasurable and limit-less. This is the foundational basis of our ‘Rendering Space’ workshop. We take any given space, small or large - a room, a street, a building - and we produce a variety of individual representations and expressions of it and from it. The workshop explores how students visually interact with their immediate & familiar environment and express that limited space within given time restraints. The workshop is developed for 12-20 students, each closely negotiating the same space in a short allocated timeframe. On this first on-location workshop of the year, we chose Thomas Street - a familiar environment close to the college in Dublin 8. The timeframe was 2 hrs. Here are a selection of images from our 1st year Group.

'RENDERING SPACE' | 1st Year Workshop (2014)

c. Ivaylo Petrov

Any given space is measurable and limited, but the possibilities of expression within that space are immeasurable and limit-less. This is the foundational basis of our ‘Rendering Space’ workshop. We take any given space, small or large - a room, a street, a building - and we produce a variety of individual representations and expressions of it and from it. The workshop explores how students visually interact with their immediate & familiar environment and express that limited space within given time restraints. The workshop is developed for 12-20 students, each closely negotiating the same enclosed space of the school grounds. The work represented here is a selection by our 'jury' of 2nd years. Well done to all involved.
