15 Minutes: A Day in the Life of a Design Student

22 May

On Wednesday, April 29, Alisa Wilhelm took a photograph every fifteen minutes during the entirety of her marathon day of design classes at the University of Arizona. Here’s her photojournal:

I am usually rushed in the mornings. Class starts at 8:00 and I wake up at 7:15 (it takes exactly seven minutes to walk to the art building at UofA from my house). On this day my first class started an hour later than it normally does, so I had time to relax, make art and drink tea. It was splendid but went downhill from there.

In the morning I was shooting photos effortlessly, and they are the type that I always want to take but am never quite sure how. However, around 11:00am, I lost that touch. In the evening I tried to think back over the day and figure out what went wrong, and I think that other people’s demands on my time is what did it. Other people taking my time is really unavoidable, I suppose, unless I become a hermit, but you can tell that I’m an introvert by how drained I become by the end of the day.
