Master’s Project Lecture, Seminar, and Briefing
LECTURE - Learning Outcome 17 & 18:
Context of where the work is placed is often half of the work. Which raises the question: What is the context of my work? Technology, people, history, design thinking, creative, philosophies and beliefs etc ??
“How is your work changing the particular look or feel of your desired field...” is a good one for me to ask myself.
Consider in my reflective essay whether my context is something I chose or whether it was given to me. ** Mine was more of a marketing opportunity I noticed during research - this is something I should emphasise.
EXAMPLE OF CONTEXT:: Bauhaus the School of Interdisciplinary Thinking (similar to the structure of the Masters course as Marie manages it).
EXAMPLE OF CONTEXT:: Check out UncensoredLibrary on Minecraft. A library of free press articles, unavailable in countries where censorship is strict.
EXAMPLE OF CONTEXT:: Adidas Parley, a sneaker made out of ocean waste, including fishing lines etc.
NOTE: I can use a quote about our Information Age as a way to justify this form of, otherwise obscure, advertising. In an age where information is at everyone‘s fingertips, unknowns become a more valuable commodity. This can be taken advantage of/capitalised on for advertisement purposes.
Maybe I should consider the effect of COVID on my concept (the great reset - how much will things change and what effect can I expect to have in that new environment?)
EXAMPLE OF CONTEXT:: Museum of Kindness, where stories become art. Artists turning moments of kindness into art works to display at a museum. Material that you’re working with might be other people’s materials <— Interesting for Calyx as well. I wonder if I could implement other people’s experiences into the stories I’m working on.
