- Collect relevant imagery in an attempt to visually represent yourself
- Learn how to do quick visual tests, without overthinking
In this lesson you will source and collect imagery relating to your own sense of identity.
Analyse what you have picked and HOW it talks about your identity.
Now you should have a rough idea of what your project is going to look like or what part of your identity it is going to address.
See the learning from Miss Papali’i for lesson 4 in her blog.
It is time to brainstorm and source your own visual imagery. At this research/ hunting and gathering stage it may be a good idea to look at photographs you have already taken or have been taken of you. Collect some imagery or objects that represent you (this could be found through family photo albums, social media, or even little doodles/sketches, anything goes).
In doing this you are creating a visual language purely for yourself, something completely unique to you. Once you have collected everything, try pairing things together, do some quick tests, and photograph these on your phone or camera. These can be rough and don’t have to look polished, it's all about getting ideas flowing.
