MAKING THINGS PUBLIC

PROJECT 3: SUMMARISE

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

 

– The flag must reflect, simplify and SUMMARISE your research project

 

FINAL ARTWORK in vector form. Apparently the Australian Flag Makers (our supplier) prefer AI or EPS files.

 

SIZE 1800 x 900 (portrait)

 

Find a LOCATION in G building to hang your flag. This is where you can think about how your work will fit in a public space. We will feature your flags in our catalogue for Making Things Public so they can be identified by visitors.

 

– A 50 word DESCRIPTION about your flag. This will also sit in the catalogue.

AIMS

 

– to summarise your research

– to experiment with fundamental visual language and layout

– to consider the space your design will be situated in

SUMMARISE

DESIGN A FLAG

 

Historically, the role of a flag has been used to represent nations and ideology through connecting people with symbols.

 

In this context, however, you will design a banner to represent and summarise your research around public space this semester. You can think of the whole semester as an expanded visual essay: project 1 was the introduction, project 2 is the main body of the research and project 3 is the conclusion. Think about how you might have changed your point of view over the semester or bring to the fore your findings or realisations. Have your original thoughts about public space been changed or reinforced by your research? How can you depict this process visually?

 

Your banner/flag could be an existing text statement or a visual detail (or combination) from other parts of your research project. It could be a new work, the result of a speculation from project 2 for example. It might be didactic or more subtle. Think in terms of the visual language you have already employed during the first two projects.
