Today's Class: YOU IN NUMBERS
// objective: interpreting quantitative research findings and applying this to a creative outcome.
// time: 6 weeks
// final submission: research document and A2 poster - 2 colours only
This is the final task for you, as an explorer of the world.
Throughout the semester you have learnt abstract ways to think as a creative practitioner, using new ways to source and gather research and information. Now is the time to apply these skills and turn them into a final piece of communication.
The subject of this brief is YOU. You are required to create an A2 poster of yourself, a visual portrait that uses every single number that is connected to you. In the modern world we have many numbers connected to us: identification, passwords; referencing our favorite soundtracks; catching the tram to uni; numbers are very much part of our identity. You are required to research, analyze and discover these numbers, then use these to create a portrait of yourself.

For Next Week
Next week you will be visiting the State Library of Victoria for your Research Methods class, so you will meet at the Library steps at 10am.
I will be away next week. Instead, you will have teacher Ben Dudding taking your for REM and ID2 classes. Make sure you are on time at the Staet Library. If you want to take a guided tour, I believe there are free tours at 11:30 am.
