"On the MA you meet people who are very much in tune with your own interests, creating an invaluable peer to peer network."

Main details

"With its intersecting of experimental media practice with critical theory it was not a difficult decision for me to choose Goldsmiths as my place of study. I wanted to explore my own creative practice but with a strong theoretical backbone present along the way, which the College provided.

I found Graham and Luciana to be extremely supportive and inspiring, encouraging me to think more critically than I would have previously and giving me brilliant mentoring on the main two projects which I developed whilst at Goldsmiths: Ace of Spades Hunt and Lost London.

The network which you build during your year on the course is invaluable. I made some lovely friends whilst on my BA but not necessarily any who I would work with. However, on an MA you meet people who are very much in tune with your own interests, creating an invaluable peer to peer network. I think after an MA course this is vital.

Since graduating I've embarked on a one week residency at DEC labs hosted by Metal (facilitated by Graham), starting a project called Emotional Geocaching, I have become part of MzTEK which has given me the chance to work with renowned artists such as Shu Lea Cheang, Tine Bech and Anna Dumitriu, I completed an internship with Blast Theory last year and currently I'm working with Ele Carpenter on her Embroidered Digital Commons project, facilitating workshops for it at Furtherfield Gallery."
