I graduated from the BA Fine Art in 2010 and spent 3 years working independently as an artist in London. During that period of time I became more and more interested in how art might become part of, include, and shape research into the social world. Finding out about the Visual Sociology MA programme was perfect because it allowed me to continue to think about visual and material questions of making as well as introducing me to such a wealth of ideas, theory, research practices and most importantly, a group of other students and tutors, that have expanded my understanding of what visual research is about. The fact this programme only runs at Goldsmiths is testament to the experimental and cross disciplinary atmosphere here and I have enjoyed my time immensely, trying to soak up as much learning as I can! I'm looking forward to putting what I have learned into action by developing the work I was doing previously.
