endnote and networking

I have begun usingĀ  endnote to store references and it is a very useful research tool. I have discovered that images stored under figures or artwork can be inserted into a word document with a label and the figure number is automatically placed in the text and a reference is added. But a list of illustrations is unfortunately not generated.

Attended a lecture by Dr Susan Lowish concerning the integration of indigenous art into Australian art history as an introduction to her RSH Visiting Fellowship at ANU focusing on Gunbalanya in Western Arnhem Land and Ernabella in South Australia. Noted the presence of anthropologist Prof. Howard Morphy, director of RSH and Prof. Sasha Grishin, Head of Art History at ANU and realised the importance of networking.

I felt privileged to meet artist/tattooist eX de Medici at the Australian War Memorial, currently employed as a war artist in PNG. Her intricate tattoos and watercolours featuring moths and weaponry inspired me to explore both mediums.
