This assignment was very different to any others I have done throughout the course. I had the fun task of creating a 3D model using real materials that embodied my chosen word; gratitude, and then do a presentation to my tutor and other students at a WIP event via zoom.
Sadly, no students attended this particular session but I was fortunate to be able to present to both my current tutor and a previous tutor, both of whom have been very supportive and encouraging whilst I have been studying this degree.
My tutors were both very impressed with the evidence of broad thoughtfulness and iterative approach that I made for a very well-validated and successful design. They were pleased with the preparation and presentation showing both success and demonstrative progress. Nerves were very much at the forefront of my presentation, but after a few slides in I relaxed and enjoyed the process. I was confident with my design and had spent time on preparing the presentation, which I did on Powerpoint, so overall a successful presentation, one that I enjoyed very much.
I will continue to build upon my materials knowledge and research skills to enable me to make good design decisions. I will also continue to practice with imagery and graphics, finding a better balance of how to showcase my work.
My tutor is pleased to see my research continues to be recorded in my learning log.
Going forward I have made a list to help organise my thoughts and actions
- continue to back up my work with images or diagrams
- continue to be more experimental with how I communicate my ideas by researching skills that give me a variation of ideas
- continue documenting my ideas throughout my learning log and show my notes and analysis of my work
I will continue to look at ways of improving my work and expand upon my research and drawing when considering all the detail that should be put in my assignments.
