Free Will and Determinism

This is a holding spot for the Free Will and Determinism (FW&D) project, which began as the Final Major Project (FMP) from my Foundation course.


On that project I developed a short film which explained my own view of FW&D:

That view is that ‘free will’ is all about the future and how we bring it about while ‘determinism’ is about the past and what events led up to now: the two are neither compatible nor incompatible, they describe wholly unconnected circumstances.

That said, my initial work on this project is not solely an exploration of my own view but also of the arguments made by various people in the debate about the philosophy of FW&D. It is also an exploration of how I want to make art. My practice will focus on painting and printmaking.
