I have now started work on Assignment 2: Self Portrait. I have thought a lot about how I want to portray myself and I have spent some time making some sketches; taking photographs of myself and my possessions as well as scanning stuff in. I also understand from the course notes that some criticism of others' work is necessary and I have e-mailed my tutor today for some input. I hope that I will be able to complete this module by the end of February. Now I just need to put it all together to make a final image!
I have reorganised the slide show to show a sequence of thought processes. I am now thinking along the lines of footprints, hand prints etc, not in the literal sense but in the abstract sense of my impression on life and life's impressions on me.
I have also started to look at self portraits made by other people and have been making some notes in my paper log. This assignment, I notice, requires not only self criticism but also assessment of other's work including a statement on how other students completed the tasks. I have e-mailed my tutor, as instructed, but, as yet, have not heard from him. It is only a week, but I hope he sends me an answer soon as it is holding me back.
