Graduate Show Invitation & Title Design

The invitation should be ready to go out today - here is a draft of the design we finally came up with, thanks to all contributors - I think it looks pretty good:


You can download this one, but I'll also send a group email with this attached.


Ghost Signs

Today you should be working as a group on the text for your exhibition selection. Consider the following when writing your exhibition essay (one page should be adequate):

What items have you selected from the archive and why did you choose them?

What form did your research take? What did you find?

Have you got any further material to add to the Lewis & Skinner items?


You must complete documenting your selected items in a word document by next week's class, and include any additional material you have found or created such as photographs of sites as they are now, any research finds such as articles, websites, old photographs etc.

Don't forget to properly reference any content that you find which is not your own. You can use Web URLs, article references, or if it's your own photograph, make sure you include your name as the creator of the image and when and where it was taken. We want to make sure that when we put things online, we give credit where it's due to any creators of content - this means having your own name linked to photographs etc.


Aims: by the end of class you should have documented the items you have selected from the archive in a Word document, and you should have a strong outline for your exhibition essay.

Template: I have put together a template in Word which outlines what you need to submit in the document next week. We will have time in class to finish things off, but I need time too to upload your content and create the Exhibitions in the Lewis & Skinner archive.

Word Template Doc: GhostSignsProjectDocumentTemplate.docx


use any remaining time to work on your blogs - upload some images of your work in progress, post links to content you have viewed, you can even post your ideas and research for the current assessment tasks.


Homework / Readings

Complete any outstanding work by next week. I will be assessing your blogs during the next week before the last class, so this is your last chance to refine existing content/layout or add new content.
