– Gather your collection through ‘primary’ methods – any photographs must be your own creation
(and not gathered via internet image searches).
– Your research will need to be thematically clear and you should be prepared to present and justify
– Your research and project development should be presented in logical format, via your blog, and
should be annotated with written reflection.
>Collect 30 artifacts or images of the same type.
>Produce an animation or a body of design that communicates the taxonomies and cultural insights within this collection.
>The target audience are young, design aware students from Hong Kong.
>We will communicate with this audience via online methods, through our blogs and twitter.
>From my collection I will develop the most appropriate concept and produce a cohesive body of work.
>Presentation of the work may be a number of static images or designs, moving image, virtual display, animation or physical installation.
The University of Huddersfield has a large Chinese community, I could choose to approach some of these students and possibly gain an opinion from them on the subject.
What is taxonomy?
– the practice and science (study) of classification of things or concepts, including the principles that underlie such classification.
– Explore objects and data
– Explore things within my interest, I can then define my content.
– Explore the relationships of my chosen 30 things.
– Create a list of things i can do with my 30 things.
– Check out museums and how they collect and present their collections.
– Look at books in the library on collections
If it’s 30 of the same exact same thing, like the same coffee cup, then you could look at these factors:
- who’s used it?
- What’s been in it?
- Where has it moved? etc.
