Today was my first opportunity to discuss my chosen theme and how I had tackled the pre-arrival task through a range of marking-making, observational drawing, and contextual research.
The tutorial was structured in a way that a group of my fellow students and I would discuss our chosen theme and how we had each chosen to tackle it. Initially, I thought the idea of showing my work within a group to be rather daunting but in hindsight, it was a really fantastic way to bounce new ideas around that as individuals we may not have contemplated yet.
- How do I refine my Concept Board?
- How do I intertwine my visual and contextual research via Powerpoint?
- Which elements within my visual research should I choose that amalgamate coherently within my theme?
The feedback received was overwhelmingly positive. My blog will serve as a way to reflect upon each tutorial, which in turn will allow me to keep an easily accessible account of my progress throughout my time @ Nottingham Trent University.
- Begin to think of a working title for my concept.
- Create a glossary of words, which will help inform my concept.
- Demonstrate personal interests.
- Look at colour, pattern, textures, and tone. Group together in individual aesthetics.
- Explore theme through harmony and contrast.
- Expand visual research through mark-making, photography, and observational drawing.
- Look closely at the relationship between movement, rhythm, and kinetics.
- Reflect progress through each workshop, tutorial, SDS, contextual and visual research.
MY NEXT GOAL
Set up Powerpoint to create a rich and varied Contextual Research File.
