Here is my crude rendering of my precursor 2. On the left I was asked to draw my project and I thought the best way to do so was drawing the photo of myself that inspired this whole second half (you can see it in the background of my blog). The drawing induces abject horror at its terribleness but also visually represents the personal side of my work I think. I’m just saying it’s interesting that that is the visual symbol I went with being given a few minutes to render it. On the right are the decisions I’ve made in approaching the second half of my precursor program. They reflect loads of stuff that has happened outside of my lab and this artefact like:
- arriving at a greater understanding of and passion for what I’m researching this year
- knowing how and why I got to that stage
- talking to people
- discovering research methods I didn’t know existed
I’m then asked to write what these have in common with my revamped artefact at the general concern and fascination remains the same: the way young women represent themselves through the image.
