A5: planning

The requirements for A5 in the course manual are:

Submit a 2,000-word reflective account of the resolution of your publication (i.e. the work you have done since Body of Work). You should discuss in depth how you have resolved your major publication and justify your particular choices relating to its publication. Evaluate your efforts to engage an audience with your major project and the related themes. This should be a fully illustrated and referenced piece of academic writing.

You should also reflect upon the feedback you documented throughout the publication of the work, and also describe how you might either develop and/or promote the work further. If appropriate, you should include installation shots and a press book and/or visitor’s book.

In A4 discussions with my tutor, it was agreed that it was acceptable to submit this as a video presentation accompanied by a script. This is on the basis that there is already considerable written work around SYP – the materials on the website, the Padlet, and the online Synopsis of work and promotion. I’ll compile a list of references to add to my materials for the academic context.

I learned about writing for the spoken word when writing the narrative for my Drifting video – what sounds good in one’s head may not work so well when spoken out loud. Therefore, I’ll be reading the script out loud as it is edited to avoid rework once voice recording starts. Content-wise, I intend to address the context of the progression of my SYP work as well as the work itself (ie the challenges I’ve faced through OCA organisation).

I’m also conscious of my own limitations as an ‘actor’ when reading out loud (I originally voiced the Drifting narrative). However, I found some useful advice from an author who also read Audible books – be loud, be slow (150 wpm max), and don’t drone (say the words naturally as if you are telling the story, not self-consciously reading).

In the video, I plan to show the site-specific exhibition images as a background and demonstrate the mobile interactivity of the poster QR codes.
