My blog for Body of Work is a place where I've documented experimenting and developing my creative practice, using theory to inform this process. In this post I describe ways to effectively navigate this blog as well as attaching a document outlining ways I believe I've achieved the Learning Outcomes.
I think the images I've produced for my Body of Work work best when printed at a large size. This is because there are some details in my images which wouldn't be as appreciable at a smaller print size. These include people who are distant in the frame and signs of wear in the older buildings. In this post I've documented my thoughts when looking at the prints. I also made a video of myself looking the prints and describing them, but for the purposes of this blog, the script I used to make the video still offers a good insight into how I perceive my images to work.
Here, I have written down how I feel I have satisfied the assessment criteria for Body of Work overall.
I have attached below my tutor report for Assignment 5 - Body of Work. In addition, I have noted my responses to the feedback. My responses include making amendments to my website and incorporating some of my tutor's suggestions for my essay for Contextual Studies which I've now completed.
In this self-assessment for Assignment 5 I will evaluate how I feel my work produced for the assignment holds up against the following 4 criteria for assessment: Demonstration of technical and visual skills, Quality of outcome, Demonstration of creativity and Context.
I am presenting my final portfolio of images alongside poems in an online portfolio. The relevant link for my body of work Reconstructing Deptford can be found in this post. As well as this I have written an introduction to accompany the project and an evaluation of my body of work module.
I have attached below my tutor report for Assignment 4 - Body of Work. As well as this I have written down my reflections on my tutor's feedback following our video tutorial for Assignment 4. I feel I have addressed most of my tutor’s feedback since the video tutorial, which has allowed me to present well a body of work comprising single images and their corresponding poems in an online portfolio.
Here is my evaluation for my Body of Work. It is quite lengthy at just under 2,000 words but describes quite thoroughly my journey through this module as well as looking forwards.
I had two main objectives when creating my website/online portfolio. These included making the website look as clean and minimalist as possible in order to make the images the centre of attention. The second aim was to make the website accessible and easy to navigate.
I have written an introduction for my body of work. I found it difficult to get the balance right between going into too much depth about the project and simplifying it too much. Eventually I have arrived at something I am fairly happy with as an insight into how the work was created while still enticing the viewer to look at the images and poems.
