This selection of work is nothing more than a 'capture' of some pieces that I produced during the two years that I worked at Collarts. Most of these thoughts were originally produced as blog posts, first thoughts or critical responses to media reports. Yes, most of these writings are unconnected to one another but I wanted to capture my thoughts before they were lost in the ether. I believe it is best to lead by example and my desire for Collarts' students to write blogs where they are able to collegially critique one another provided the impetus for this work. Indeed this strategy was successful and Collart's now has a student body that expresses their thoughts via the Collarts' blogs. Job done.
