Ubud, Indonesia – July 22, 2015. Foundry students are beginning to feel the pressure, so they are working harder than ever on their projects…calling subjects, fixers and others who can help them, missing meals while traveling to remote island spots to expand their coverage and waiting in rural locations for expected events to happen. Alas, it’s the plight of a diligent journalist.
But most students found time for the evening instructor presentations at Betelnut Cafe. There, Thorne Anderson provided working tips to students, using his work to demonstrate the tips. Then Tewfic El-Sawy showed prior work from his career, as did James Delano Whitlow who showed multimedia pieces on human trafficking and environmental damage by human activity.
Claire Rosen delivered a special program on creativity and how to develop one’s own creative skills, after which she interviewed Maggie Steber about her own personal creative process. Then Maggie showed her work “Secret Garden,” a dark look into one’s own emotions as a basis for developing work projects.
