A list of books to read for Semester 1.
It’s been several weeks and I finally feel like I’ve gotten up to speed. I’ve struck a nice balance between shooting and reading, which was much needed.
As I look at this residency, I am completely overwhelmed by the volume of work to which I have been given an introduction. Not only have I been shown and taught new ways of thinking (at times with resistance on my part), I have begun to think critically about my own work and the work I am in contact with every day. Through the deluge of information and data, ideas and counterpoints, I’ve seen a pattern of interest begin to emerge. There are several main areas of growth I’ve experienced over this residency and many new ideas have begun to form in my mind.
