In May Bryan and I were awarded the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience Grant. Applying for the grant was probably the best decision I’ve made in my time here at New Paltz and I highly suggest other undergrads to find a mentor and go for it! The opportunity to truly focus on a project that I was passionate about with uninterrupted time and dedication was more than worth it. I closed the chapter on the grant last week with my final presentation but in reality I feel like I’ve just laid the foundation. With a thesis exhibition 3 months away the real work has barely begun. You can get more in-depth info about the project on the blog which I tried to keep as faithfully as possible throughout the summer so rather than repeating myself here I would l just like to show my final piece. I like to think it’s the seed from which my thesis will grow.
