Second Term – A New BriefPosted: January 21, 2014
Second Term started on the 13th of January with Monday morning meeting in the studio, where we received our new brief – ‘The City’. The brief is constructed so that the first 3 weeks are spent investigating and even observing the subject (city) to find something on which an interesting project can be built. To help with this research and with starting the work off we are presented with 3 themes to investigate with the intention of one of them becoming our chosen theme in which our work/project should fit. These themes are:
- Power/Technology – religion/politics/sustainability
- The Hidden City – the multiple guises or layers of city life
- Migration – People/ideas/material/industrial
I have presented themes in order of interest to me. I shall focus my research on Power/Technology and The Hidden City.
Afternoon took the form of a lecture and class on ethics concerning art and design work and ethics of research methods.
