Why a Reflective Journal?

by Beauchamp Art

A reflective journal is a means of distilling the amalgamated creative produce and consumption that is undertaking a steady progressing of critical practice.

It can document ongoing projects and how they are interwoven with wider research, interests and events. This may include exhibitions, works in progress, relevant articles dissected and reassembled into a Frankenstein format available for public consumption and personal reflection.

I am a Fine Art alumni and I have been maintaining my reflective journal in its current blog format for four and a half years. If its development paralleled that of a human child, it should in theory now be producing some new, independent thought supported by the universal grammar of its internal systems, and questioning everything in the spirit of naivety, anarchism, and academia.
