The Footnotes

JUST JOKING

Year 12 student regrettable, “I thought it would be funny to do three prac subjects”

“I thought it would be easy, maybe even fun.”

Local Year 12 student Daniel (17) has bravely agreed to speak to The Footnotes despite being knee-deep in three major works.

“I thought it would be easy, maybe even fun, to do wood work, textiles and visual art for Year 12,” he explains. “I’m knee-deep in three major works that all require manual work, but don’t have any experience building things outside of Halo.”

Sighing and flinging paint at a canvas Jackson Pollock-style – “It’s technically copying but I don’t know what else to do! I’ll probably just say it’s an interpretation or something – you can make-up all the “meaning” stuff at the last minute really” – Daniel tell us about the day, too late, he discovered scaling.

“They’ve [teachers] tried to explain it to me like eight times but I still don’t get it,” he admits. “I heard that if I took General Maths I’d have to ace it to get a decent mark and that’s never going to happen so I chose textiles. I thought I’d get to coast through and maybe meet some girls.”

“Now I’m trying to sew together a major work between cutting and pasting Pinterest pages into a portfolio and… I’m just so tired.

And so fucking over Pinterest.”
