So far, my group’s work for brief 4 is on track. When we (Rob, Lucas and I) first read the brief, we were quite confused about exactly what we were being asked to do. Brainstorming really helped us to get our ideas together and think about ‘texts’ as more than just the written word. Rather, for this task, we will adopt the definition that texts are anything that convey meaning. This could mean, for example, films, radio, novels, etc.
Ideas so far:
- Explore how modern day texts are still influenced by ancient texts.
- Comparing and contrasting texts before and after the internet.
- Historical timeline of the changes in media (text) forms
In the next week, we’re going to work on clarifying our ideas and thinking about them more pragmatically.
