Part 5 (Textiles) – Assignment five (Commentary)

Commentary on my experience of Part Five (Textiles) I feel like I've read and written so much in Part 5 that it's hard to figure where to start. I started this part of the course thinking that I had a good knowledge of textiles but quickly realized that I really didn't. Starting from the very first exercises,… Continue reading Part 5 (Textiles) – Assignment five (Commentary)

Part 4 (Photography) – Assignment four (Commentary)

Commentary on my experience of Part Four (Photography) I had no idea what to expect for this part of the course.

Three research points in particular shine from all the rest; The Pencil… Continue reading Part 4 (Photography) – Assignment four (Commentary)

Part 3 (Visual communications) – Assignment three (After feedback)

Reflection I think that for this assignment I took some steps back and some steps ahead.
