This exercise seeks to realize the intention of my thesis by establishing meaning. A performance continuum is used to map my intent towards a goal and relative to the thesis defense presentation from December. I began by creating juxtaposing the following attributes and ranking them based on how much they mean to my thesis goal.
Afterwards, I listed four attributes at the core to my thesis, which were brought up during the team exercise today in class, and ranked their proximity.
This two year Products of Design MFA degree is inherently a personal transformation or journey– from my roots as an ornamental and architectural metalsmith– but the intent of my thesis is to exhibit my strengths and weaknesses as a designer so that after graduating, I will be suitably employed in a new career as a designer.
