Hi everyone!

As part of my photography course, I have to track my development on a blog. The posts from September 2011 until January 2012 are part of a module called Project Management, for which I was required to work in a group of eight students to create an exhibition. The blog followed every step we took in order to create a successful gallery. The blog posts starting from September 2012 follow my final year on the course. I'll be documenting my research and analysis of my final year projects, as well as include notes of my Professional Practice unit - which prepares us for a range of post graduate options. Finally it also looks at a project called New Creatives, where I'll be working alongside an artists to help college students get more involved with art.

Six Thinking Hats

The six thinking hats concept is by Edward De Bono. For this semester we will be using this in order to evaluate each other’s projects. Instead of just saying we like the project, we will be asked to specify exactly why we like them. We have to form a more critical opinion. We will be using five thinking hats though.

1.      Information (white)
a.      The person who’s project it is will provide some information including the subject matter, genre, medium, opportunities and a brief summery
2.      Emotional Response (red)
a.      First people will state their first gut response, whether they like the idea or not and specify why
3.      Creative Thinking (green)
a.      This is where you think in what direction the project could go without having any constraints
4.      Critical Analysis (black)
a.      You discuss the downfalls of the project eg. unethical, too expensive etc
5.      Positive Overview and Next Steps (blue)
                a. A brief summary of all the positive points and what to do for the next tutorial
