With EBB & FLOW, Julia Oram created a series of documentary projects that focus on heritage, immigration, generational history, self, and a reflection on personal identity, and how it has impacted the present. In a photographic book she combines photographs taken from the third generation with texts from the first generation. In a film she interviewed members of the first generation explaining what their transition from Greece to Canada was like for them, things they learned, and how they grew as people, while keeping in context how these influences could have been passed down from generation to generation.

Honestly whatever kids draw. I think there honesty and freedom show authenticity and new ideas that are out of the box.
Corona school; in context online classes, I found it a challenge to focus and to learn properly.
New experiences, things that make me feel good, natural endorphin rushes.
Optimism, a few moans of frustration here and there, but over all excitement, once I have the final result. But then again what is a final result really.
Go slow, listen, talk to your peers, I found the most advice aside from some great teachers, was my peers, the brainstorming and conversations we would have really inspired me, that was something I missed when school went online. However also observing your surroundings this to visually also sparks creativity.
I have yes, I would say my work from the first semester to now is much more professional. I think especially after my internship, that was really when I got to test out Design in the real world, and this for me was growth.
I collectively knew I wanted to be in the Arts, and felt that Communication Design is so fluid in any area, I liked this flexibility of the degree.
I think I will throw myself a corona safe dinner party!
