25TH FEB - SELF DIRECTED STUDY, INVESTIGATING SPACES

UNIT AIMS 2:2 - USE ANALYTICAL AND EVALUATIVE SKILLS TO DEVELOP A RANGE OF CREATIVE SOLUTIONS TO REALISE A SELF DIRECTED PROJECT 

where did you go? what did you see? smell? touch? taste? understand? feel? take away? why? what did you record? why? what types of behaviour did you see? who  did you speak to? why where they here? was it significant for you or them? weather? did this have an affect on behaviour? why? what words would you use to describe this space? why? how has this changed your view on what narrative is ? how do you plan on using this research?

 Whilst investigating this particular space i made some valid realisation and connections which i felt i could use to better my understanding of narrative space. Interestingly i found that most of the spaces i found weren't particularly anything special. However what they consisted of was something quite interesting. I quickly learnt that the spacial qualities of this spaces created something unique. In this particular space, the use of artificial lighting affected peoples behaviour, I found that sketching out my observations made it easier for me to understand what was happening and why it was occurring. Having something to refer back to when not being in the environment meant i could use this as primary research. This process made it  extremely useful and i repeated this actively throughout the whole of my project. Carrying out small conversations with other occupants in the space also Heighten my understanding of what i was experiencing, interestingly what we were experiencing was necessarily the same which made me think about why this was. 

Action plan 

  • Refer back to primary research and develop a better understanding 
  • carry out more contextual research (interior and exterior spaces)
  • Actively question yourself about what ouse experience in reflections 
  • Create a sketch book page visualising what you've experienced in this spaces
