Today was the first day of crit for the 'Acoustic space' project. It did not go very well.

It seems I have not spent enough time on the project, and the result was much less pleasing than I had thought. The teacher, Sang Lee, gave a rather long oral evaluation which with the dreaded word 'You need to be doing the work', and ended up with him calling my drawing bread with fungus, and my object a pizza oven with rotten manure in, after which he kicked it several times. He also spoke about how he was disappointed my the low quality of the craft of my object, using old ideas, and that I couldn't put together something the last few days and expect that to work for very long. There was also something of him preferring a hard-working dumb-ass over a somewhat talented, but lazy smart-ass any day.

Not quite what I had expected, but he was right about not spending enough time on the project. However, I just quit my work at the bookshop a few days ago, and will probably have much more time to spend on school from now on. I know that most of the things he said were true, and I will improve. A lot.

(The apple? I took the picture after almost being hit by a car when I was crossing the street earlier this winter. I slipped and fell, and many of the things in my bag laded in the street, including this apple. I was very angry, upset and frustrated. However, I thought the apple looked nice where it landed, so I managed to take this picture in between all the feelings.)

Tomorrow I'll know if I pass the course or not. 

EDIT 5th February: I will have to supplement (or remake) my work within next Friday, and will hopefully pass the course. Wish me luck!


  1. Så fin blogg! Visste ikke at du blogget : )

  2. Sang Lee is heading for serious trouble if he keeps on with that "tough guy" - attitude next year.
