I’m using a loan machine right now from Wacom. It’s the 13 inch STUDIO PRO. My Companion 2 is going to Germany for repairs. Something odd has been happening with the temperature regulating mechanism. So it’s been crashing at really inopportune times. I’ve been configuring the Studio Pro to match the settings on my Companion 2, so that my workflow remains intact. Unfortunately, the Studio Pro, while having a vastly superior screen, and much less weight, has NO USB 3.0 ports, and THREE USB C…Continue Reading “Flower”

2017-05-31 Education in Finland — Best Practices

I went to a conference this morning on the Soweto Campus of UJ (The University of Johannesburg). The program had several leading educationalists from Finland sharing how their educational system works, and how South Africa is collaborating with them to improve our teaching. I was in the third row, only because the first two rows were reserved. Otherwise I’d have been in pole position as usual. Key takeouts from the sessions: 1. "We don’t trust steering, we trust learning." 2. Teachers in FInland are massively…Continue Reading “2017-05-31 Education in Finland — Best Practices”

FVPA — 2017-03-10 — Nondumiso Msimanga — Woza Albert

Last week Friday, Nondumiso Msimanga showed the first years in the Film, Visual, and Performing Arts lecture a screening of the live-filmed version of the play, WOZA ALBERT. When I was still in high school, I saw three plays that completely changed my life… SIZWE BANZI IS DEAD, SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE PALACE, and WOZA ALBERT. It was quite hectic watching the video. The image I’ve captured here is a hint of what I regard as the pivotal scene in the play. It’s where a…Continue Reading “FVPA — 2017-03-10 — Nondumiso Msimanga — Woza Albert”
