Here are my favourite photos from the 3 sets, along with a layout sketch of how the whole thing is to be shown at the exhibition.
The introduction of my Artist's Statement:
'Society often lables people with body modification as ”different” from what we tend to call ”normal” people. For my Folio I have photographed people from alternative cultures, with tattoos and piercings, in their day-to-day routines. Despite often being considered outsiders in society, by seeing them do their everyday things in their own homes, we see that they are, in fact, just as ”normal” as you or me.'

Here's my second Digital Media short film which I handed in yesterday - a commercial for Pepsi. Or rather, a spoof commercial :) Had loads of fun making it - maybe it shows?
Tomorrow is the deadline for our Print Media artbooks, so I'm sitting here scanning and Photoshopping like a maniac. But I love it! Tomorrow is also the deadline for the Print Media moringa report, however, and the photography submission for the Photo Media Folio. Thursday the completed Folio is to be handed in, together with the Artist Statement and the last photography assignment - AND the final Unspeakable Beauty essay. GAH! Another coffee, please!

I've spoken to her lawyer and told them I'm willing to go to mediation. I honestly don't think jail is the best option for her in the state she's in - it would probably just be even more detrimental. I'd rather see her go to rehab and try to change her life around.. The police, however, are definitely not keen on that idea. They want her in jail, period. For that reason, I'm writing a Statement now that we'll send them - seeing as I'm the complainant in this case, surely what I want should be worth something?
This is a really difficult situation which will end up drastically changing this girl's life in one way or another. Please cross your fingers and keep me in your thoughts..

This coming Friday it would have been your birthday.. But instead of letting myself get miserable, I've decided we're going to go out, have some drinks for you, and go dancing.. I know you'd have loved it ;)
I love and miss you, my friend <3

This backpackers feels like a luxury hotel after our night in Bundaberg haha.. We went surfing yesterday which was really fun (3 hour surf-school for $17!) and today was spent on a tiny secluded beach a short boatride from the 1770 marina. The only bummer is that it is SO windy, so we can't go diving as the currents are too strong and the visibility won't be too great :( This midterm will be my only chance to dive on the Great Barrier Reef so I'm reeaally hoping that the wind will die a little so we can go diving before the week is over!
Last night I finally saw my first kangaroos and wallabes - and they were not in a zoo ;) We did a sunset tour with a guy called Paul, who took us all over the peninsula here to look at the roos, and finally to a lookout spot where we could see the sun set over the water (one of 3 places where you can see that here on the Australian east coast). The trip was rounded off with a cold beer on the rocks by the bay as it got dark outside - so lovely.
I'm seriously wishing I didn't have to go to class for the rest of my time in Australia. I'd love to just do the rest of my assignments online and stay here in Agnes haha! But the week will have to end, unfortunately.. such is life. But until then, I'm going to enjoy every last minute of this place :)

The backpackers was soo dirty and the whole city kind of smelled of sweat. Even the distillery was a bit of an anti-climax. What a waste of 24 hours haha.. Oh well, it's experiences like this that makes us appreciate the good places!

We don't really have much else planned, we'll just kind of wing it from there.. If you don't overplan things and have really high expectations then you can't be disappointed. If something sucks we'll move on, if it rocks then we'll stay - simple as that :)

Have been working like a maniac on the material for my new website these last 3 days and finally got everything done! The new website (which is www.annabrandberg.com if you haven't already figured that out) should be up and running by the weekend.. But here's a sneak preview of some of my design work for you who are wondering exactly what it is I do in class :)
And maybe this is a great time for some shameless advertising - if you need any graphic design work done, give me a shout! Anything from logos to business cards to posters to menus.. you name it. If it's in print, I'll do it!
