I will continue to use the evaluation framework from my previous tutor for convenience. Although somewhat long winded, the approach does provide me with a series of different lenses through which to consider my work on the projects. Although I’m sure a lighter weight approach would suffice, this approach does seem to be effective for reflection. As I did the preparation as a block, however, I will do the evaluation together as well.
Its taken me a while to actually start Project 4.1. Partly this was taking a break in general, but I have also been trying to do some practice and consideration of how best to approach it. The brief makes it clear that this is about building a network of lines and not continually rubbing stuff out if you make a mistake.

Starting to think through my approach to part 4, I’m going to try to approach it slightly differently this time. I’m going to start by thinking through the brief of all the elements at the same time, and work out what contextual research makes sense based on that. Continue reading “Part 4: Overall approach”
