Microscopic Life Drawing at Imperial College. Abandoning the drawing materials, I felt more at ease capturing the images with my camera through the microscope. This felt a better way of preserving what I could see rather than making quick sketches. On the slides a number of weird and wonderful things could be observed from embryos to silk worms.
Photography project in collaboration with Jess Barton's Project on Death. A visit to a crematorium objectively recorded the process of the daily ritual experienced there. With access before the start of service we experienced this place without emotion and felt oddly at ease.

Life Drawing of the circulatory system. This workshop taught us about the heart and its function in the body. With in depth explanation into its vital parts, we transferred this knowledge into drawing a life model concentrating not on what we saw but what we imagined within.
