“The camera doesn’t rape, or even possess, though it may presume, intrude, trespass, distort, exploit and, at the farthest reach of metaphor, assassinate – all activities that, unlike the sexual push and shove, can be conducted from a distance, and with some detachment” (Sontag, 1977).
A documentation of ideas, process and critical reflection.
Because this module of study was focused on experimentation and exploration in terms of development, I freely and divergently tested this process throughout, possibly devoting too much time to this phase, dreading the presentation and modes of display for the assessment with the amount of time I have allowed for this process.
The work I am producing for this project creates a very intimate space with the viewer in which the concept of theory and my practice have led my design decisions which have emotionally controlled the layout, materials and typographical placement and techniques.
This blog entry will focus solely on the backgrounds for the front and back covers I am working on for documentation of process and experimentation methods. I feel if I were to go into the logotype, the layout design, etc. that the point of this message would be overshadowed by noise.
These outcomes will respond to the theme acting as a stimulus to creative problem solving for the project.
In this form of play questions are formed, ideas are structured, tested, questioned, iteratively.

Interpretive research is vastly different in that it is similar to qualitative practices but distinct in its approach placing subjects of study in their contexts, historical, linguistic, etc. shaped by the social contexts of human experience.
