PhD shopping

it feels like i’m shopping for a husband at the moment, because i’m doing serious research into possibly doing a PhD.

i still don’t even know if it’s the right thing to do, but i’m talking to peeps about it anyway.

and it’s quite a strange process to feel like you’re testing people for a commitment of 3-4 years.

part of me wants to research in an international university, for something different. although i do love the idea of working with some fantastic australian artists/writers.

and it has thrown me into a bit of a quandary about how to best extend my practice. through the ‘research’ model of academia, or through the ‘development’ model of studio practice and funding? i’m sure that i’m being a tad binary about that either/or, but it feels like two different very routes to take and i don’t know which one serves me best – i think i’d like a little from column A and a little from column B, please.

and perhaps i’m over-thinking the whole thing and i should just have some goddamn fun.
