For our first subject project of the year we were given the brief to create a finished book based on the idea of collections. My initial response to the subject of collections was to explore what the idea of collection is and what defines it.
- Does it need to be a physical collection or could it be a collection or words or thoughts?
- What links a collection together? Appearance, methodology, medium, repetition?
- ‘To be a collection there needs to be a relationship between the objects’ – from Barnaby Dicker’s visual language seminer 10/10/16
One of the targets set for this project is focused experimentation is to make it engaging for someone else and to be able to explore a new medium and to advance my skills in it. By creating a book the need for a cohered theme within the pages to ensure a fluid reading experience and a more resolved narrative
