"The most valuable thing I learnt whilst studying MA Visual Anthropology at Goldsmiths University, was how to combine theory with practice. I did my BA at art school, where it was mostly about doing and making. Doing this master study, I experienced how theory could really inform and inspire my practice, but also how my practice could lead me towards certain theoretical tools. Most of my professors were also artists or makers, and they changed my perspectives on the academic world; before I was a bit scared of dense theory and I was worried I would not do it 'right'. But they showed me theory truly is a creative tool. They gave me the freedom to experiment not only in my visual work, but also in my writing."
