this workshop was run by darren and we looked back at some research techniques and some suggestions how to handle the research work for our books and for future projects.
we wrapped this around the brief of 'high street mash up'-contrasting one nice upper class high street with and more dirty lower class high street
we began by displaying all of our images on the wall, divided into the richer/poorer and spend a moment looking at each
we then traced some of the images to help us see what defined each area as richer or poorer.
this is a visual research technique. we should SHOW OUR RESEARCH not TELL our research
Lastly we took some of the images but traced them together, deliberately 'mashing up' the two together and see what reslults appear from the immediate and obvious contrast
WE NEED TO REMEMBER
we could and hsould get together to research, i know im lucky enough to speak in depth about projects, the overall subject of our course and inspiration with a small handful of incredibly inspiring people ive met here.and im damn lucky to have this, this peer based learning ive personally learnt is very important yet never mentioned
Also, THIS IS A GRAPHICS COURSE, NOT A WRITING COURSE-
SHOW YOUR RESEARCH, DONT TELL IT
