Finally, I am officially graduated Master of Digital from College of fine Arts, University of New South Wales. No, I did not attend the graduation ceremony and had the Degree mailed to me. It might an honour to be in it but I actually was handed the Bachelor of Arts degree from King Bhumipol. Nothing could really top that. And it was the process of learning that really mattered, not that piece of paper.
What did I get from COFA? It was not the university life. It was the great opportunity to find myself again. After years of living in Australia and not working in a creative job, it nearly killed me. Photography was the major output but the medium was enough for me. I wanted more.
There were ideas I wanted to explore and they helped me realise them. Some were developed from the photography works and some I had in mind for a long time. And I am still very pleased with them today because I believe I did push the boundary, both mine and theirs. To create works without priceless consultants from the tutors there will be somewhat challenging. There are still projects I want explore and do it outside a university wall is definitely another game.
