Lindsay Seers delivered a unique and engaging lecture on Wednesday 2nd March 2016 inviting Falmouth School of Art students into her creative process. Her use of photography to document, act as evidence and represent reality as well as raw, truthful lecture delivery inspired the accompanying visual; my unedited spontaneous notes during the presentation. Sharing these brings similar feelings of unease that Seers described as an influence in her work.
