Dissertation Planning

Today was exceptionally exciting and slightly daunting as I had my first tutorial about my dissertation. This in some ways is the start to the end as it seems I’m beginning the most significant document I will produce during my three years at this university!

Today I went in to the meeting open minded on what I would look at, although thinking I would produce a business plan I was still very unsure on what to do! After a brief discussion through my past experiences and talking through my current reading list; I was given a new lease of life, we talked through a variety of ideas, looked at suitable topics and books which would be vital to my progression.

I also spoke of my interests and after an in depth talk, I was unsure on whether to pursue a business plan as my dissertation or rather to look at an artefact.

Below are some quick topic ideas that we established:

  1. Wabi-sabi
  2. Sustainability
  3. Upcycling
  4. Recycling
  5. Quality
  6. Bespoke
  7. Handmade

I was also given a list of artists and authors of which I should look at during my preliminary research over the next few weeks.

Although petrified by the task of writing an enormous document which possibly signifies the end to my time at university, I am now unbelievably excited!
