“New York Catch Up”

Stage 3 Design and Craft

seminar 2 what was covered
Seminar 2 – what was covered?
  • Identification and editing of potential research topics
  • How to plan and structure the essay

Potential research topics

  • Broad ideas relating to studio
  • Too broad? Too vague?
  • Family secrets – concealment. The past and the self, psychoanalysis, Freud, Jung ….….…photography, truth, Barthes…..
  • Childhood and motherhood – where has this been a concern? – within painting, within psychoanalysis, within photography, within advertising - within sociology, within femininist writing on identity
  • Aim to integrate studio interests and motivation with the approaches and content that interest you most

Potential research topics

  • Aim to ‘map’ potential areas of interest through your reading and place a ‘magnifying glass’ on one or two
  • To do this effectively you will need to have begun your research by sourcing texts and materials relevant to your developing interests and themes
  • Research is ‘open’; it is hunches and clues. Gather evidence, follow your interests. Can you explore what you have through your Notebook?

What does a comparison of artistic and scientific process offer the contemporary printmaker?

What is the relationship between war photography and truth and how has it changed in the twentieth century: a study of four key photographers?

What would femininity be if women’s consciousness were released?

What is the impact of digital technology on contemporary textiles; a study of 3 key designers?
