Monica Wilmott | Why she chose to Study at PSC ?

Posted by Social Media on 20/09/2018 5:00:00 PM

 "I liked that it  was a small community and photography focused, that was a huge plus. Most of all knowing it was not ATAR score based really took the pressure off me. It suited my way of learning and achieving."

Monica Wilmott is full of passion and enthusiam for photography. We checked in to see how she is doing and reflect on the past few years as a student at PSC.

Had you always wanted to study photography?
I’ve always had a keen interest in photography.  When I was 5 years old I got my very first camera and loved experimenting. At 16 I had an awesome opportunity with my Scouts Club to document a 3-week long trip to Adelaide.  It was a fun paparazzi project, we had to meet an assignment brief that was given to us by the club and the results were eventually published in the Scouts Newsletter. The big buzz was seeing my images featured in the newsletter with my name on it! I really enjoyed the entire experience and most of all having my work out there for all to see. From then on, I knew what I wanted to study photography.

So was photography all you were considering in year 12?
Well my school wasn't as supportive as I hoped. I knew I wanted to do photography regardless of the lack of encouragement from my careers teacher who was guiding me into more academic areas of study and that just wasn't me.

There were times I just looked at what was happening on the PSC website and I just wanted to go there. I applied through VTAC and the relief was knowing it wasn't  ATAR score based and that took the pressure off me.

TSUKA' - curated by PSC’s Dr.Kristian Haggblom at the Centre for Contemporary Photography

Posted by Social Media on 20/06/2018 4:50:32 PM
 
Tsuka: An Exhibition of Contemporary Japanese Photography 
Curator: Dr. Kristian Häggblom
Gallery: Centre for Contemporary Photography
Dates: June 8th - July 15th
 
Out the back of Ueno Park and beside the pond, one can find a stone monolith, a ‘tsuka’ for sewing needles. The monument was donated and erected by local seamstresses’ to commemorate sewing needles they have worn out and hence discarded. ‘Tsuka’ is an ancient and complex Japanese term that has several meanings. Its simplest and most commonly used makes reference to a mound or hill, a pile of dirt. This mound of heaped earth is not a natural formation, but rather created through human intervention. These physical pilings are usually associated with burial and entombment, for the purposes of worship and/or mourning. Another more complex layer to this term refers to the mound as an ‘atonement tombstone’ for animals or objects that humans have thrown away or treated harshly often for their own purposes. These ‘tsuka’ sites scatter the landscape of Japan and act as physical totems and metaphoric signifiers for empathy, alleviation and possible subsequent atonement. ‘Tsuka’ therefore act as a milestone between ‘this world’ and ‘the after world’ a physical space to project invisible human aspirations, hopes and guilt. 
Tsuka is an exhibition of contemporary Japanese photography and a selection of associated photobooks. The project uses these ‘tsuka’ monuments as the starting point for visual suka  is an exhibition of contemporary Japanese photography and a selection of associated photobooks  investigations by a selection of artists that work with still and moving photography and the photobook. The artists in this project make both literal and lateral responses to the notion of ‘tsuka’, ultimately addressing the question: is the act of taking, making and exhibiting photographs, a form of ‘tsuka’ in its own right?
