Visual interpretation of Iain McGilchrist’s ‘The Master and His Emissary’

STRUCTURE ARCHEOLOGY EQUIPPED CONSCIOUSNESS After taking keywords from McGilchrist's text; I searched for images to represent these words. I then saved the images as jpgs, and converted the coding of each one into text; I added in the applicable paragraph from McGilchrist's text into the code and then changed the coding back to an image format. These were the… Continue reading Visual interpretation of Iain McGilchrist’s ‘The Master and His Emissary’

I followed the ideas proposed by our lecturer, Mark Ingham, with interest, despite me not agreeing with all of the 'wishy washy' concepts offered by Roland Barthes in 'Camera Lucida' (of which we were asked to read 13 pages of, prior to the lecture). After the… Continue reading Another ‘I remember’

After writing and sending them these questions; this is the feedback we received from our peers Max, Filipa, and Andreia, who are working on the same project in a different group. We then did the same and commented on their concept… Continue reading Crimes Against Design – Feedback from other group
