New Assignments, Briefs

Brief

Assignment 1

  1. Creative Digital Practice

A portfolio of photographic work supported by individual workbook. (75% of the
final grade.)
The topic you have chosen from Assignment 2 will become the subject of the photographic
book* you are to create in assignment 1 and should link with the objects, themes and
questions in your research which most resonated with you. You should, by the end of this
module consider yourself an expert of sorts, not of the broad topics listed below but of a
niche area situated somewhere within**.
Alongside your images, the design, production, editing and sequencing of this work must
also be considered for their impact on the reading of the work. In addition you must
develop an appropriate holistic approach in order to most effectively communicate your
idea/message to your chosen target audience;
You are required to propose, and keep in mind a particular target audience for your work –
this may be a young student or an elderly woman, you need not create a complete
backstory but be aware that a digital book may not be an appropriate medium in which to
reach and affect an 80 year old man in the Northern territories of Canada!
You must evidence your critical analysis, both of your own practice, and that of other’s you
are encountering through your research.
• Ageing population
• International culture in the UK
• Agriculture
• Rural life
• City regeneration
• Ownership and property
*You will be required to produce a well edited, sequenced, structured and executed book in either analogue
or digital form.
**As an example, should I initially focus my energies on agriculture, I may become fascinated in the bubble
of interest in home grown food, I might explore allotments and become enthralled in time with the
communities and politics which inhabitant my local allotment. This end interest is narrow, allowing me to be
well read on the subject but by no means would I be an authority on agriculture in a wider sense.

Assignment 2

Creative Digital Practice
A digital presentation (25% of the final grade).
You should create a 10 minute digital presentation on one of the topics below. You must
reference a variety of mediums in your presentation (consider film, theatre, scholarly
articles, newspapers and so on as well as photographic materials). You must also conduct
first hand research with at least one relevant and established individual in relation to your
topic. You should, by the end of this module consider yourself an expert of sorts, not of the
broad topics listed below but of a niche area situated somewhere within*.
Your presentation should highlight the decisions you make and the work/subjects that you
feel a closer affinity too through your research methodology and analysis of the story that
the authors are telling. Fundamentally this is about the story you wish to tell through the
work that you select.
You will have noticed the word story above – I do not expect a Tolkein-like saga but for you
to weave a narrative into the presentation, to link artifacts, thoughts and resources
together.
Your presentation manner and sequence should be as considered as the artifacts you
choose to highlight and the subjects you source to speak with.
• Ageing population
• International culture in the UK
• Agriculture
• Rural life
• City regeneration
• Ownership and property
*As an example, should I initially focus my energies on agriculture, I may become fascinated in the bubble of
interest in home grown food, I might explore allotments and become enthralled in time with the communities
and politics which inhabitant my local allotment. This end interest is narrow, allowing me to be well read on
the subject but by no means would I be an authority on agriculture in a wider sense.
