Lab work // thinking prepositionally

This one was a really useful exercise in thinking ‘through’ a preposition. I’m a big fan of using concepts as vehicles through which we can move toward something else. Note that I used about 2 or 3 prepositions there myself! I chose: toward, since and within as you can see on my devil scratchings above.

It is hitting home to me how cool it is that even though I’m doing a thesis I still am getting the opportunity to do some exegetical work in thinking through an artefact I have created. Where in thesis writing we usually think through or within a certain concept or framework we ourselves didn’t create but actively chose, doing a project is centring our claims on something we ourselves have done. I think this is attractive to me as a person writing a thesis in contribution to a research area with a fairly long and momentous tradition. I get to have a bit of fun now in an act of pure creation!
