The Final COFA

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.

Flash Web Fossil


While I was browsing a production house directory, it came to my mind that some  still touch with new media. Macromedia Flash was an over-hyped platform in the beginning of the millennium. It has developed through time and the take-over of Adobe. It might look cool those days but without supporting plugin, it is useless. For examples, these two production houses I clicked through Production Paradise. It turned out that they required an almost obsolete plugin, Flash Player version 5 and 6. What is the point of getting to know these companies? It shows how careless they are, especially, these days when the technology is moving fast. That said, what we are presenting on the web today, they might not be able to experience it in two years time if we do not keep up with the technology. Watch out!
