(Oh. My. God. It’s close enough to start talking about it!)

Spencer explained to us about what the next 4 weeks would entitle: dissertation preparation.

We will be taking an idea and will explore it in ways that will be a case study approach by referencing other designers. We will need to contextualise the essay. Current dissertation count is 6,000 words but it may go up.

1. Dissertation
2. Technical study – Detailed investigation of a process/technique – ground study in more objective and a lot more contextualising of what you’re doing, engage with the topic – that is report based. The hardest part is trying to work with the material.
3. Major Project: addresses the thematics of the dissertation through the process/technique/technology of the technical study.

Need a strong submission and you need to become an expert in your chosen area. All of these things are about focus and getting the scope of something right.
