Doesn’t look like a lot! Two years work and a concern that I’m submitting too much – but it doesn’t look like it in this image!
It’s ready to go, apart from the box for travel and some final labelling. There’s more than it looks, actually – about 30 prints in the black portfolio box, across the two projects, some supporting material for ‘Portraits’ in there too, and of course, all the content of the ‘Textbook’ project in that ‘old’ book that’s barely visible. It’s poking out of its ‘slip case’ – a new soft construction made from four pieces of fabric printed with my own patterns from the project and some padding material (kindly constructed and sewn by my wife). I reflected in a previous post that the re-formed book looked a little bit underwhelming on its own. I did experiment with another form of case – re-using some Amazon packaging and re-labelling it to look like a second hand book that had turned up in the post. Nice idea, but it ended up even more underwhelming, unfortunately. I’d been wondering whether there was a way to bring the fabric prints into the submission and came up with this idea – my design/print & Jayne’s final implementation (Thanks!).
My only real concern is that the assessors are going to either feel that I’ve sent too much or are simply not going to have the time to consider it all in depth. But it was discussed and agreed with my tutor and the ‘booklet’ will hopefully provide a guide through the submission.
Contextual Studies is packed and ready to got, too – so this may well be my last post in the blog; certainly for some time. Maybe come back and reflect on the results outcome in a few weeks!
