Dreams Concept Reflective


Having had the idea of a concept surrounding dreams since the¬†six potential concept ideas, my concern was the primary research for it. To problem solve, I researched further into the topic and realised there is plenty of primary and secondary research, it is perhaps just more indirect than I first thought. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount I found in both an art perspective and an psychology/science perspective, as I originally thought this area was limited. This helped me decide between my two concepts that I initially couldn’t decide between – history of objects and dreams. I am aware dreams is somewhat fictional, which was also a concern, however it is more interesting that objects. Having found substantial primary research actually defies the concept being too fictional, and emphasises its interest, meaning that it is now the concept I have chosen. I believe further research into the topic and surrounding areas was greatly beneficial in increasing my knowledge and understanding of the subject and has shown my that I simply need to look further into things before dismissing them.


‘Full Emersion’ Concept Activity Reflective

Doing this research activity allowed me to fully submerse myself into a concept I wouldn’t normally choose. To problem solve, I gathered much primary information in response to the concept and formulate potential ideas from this. We were only given one and a half hours to gather enough research and create some kind of developmental ideas. However, doing this in such a short space of time emphasised the importance of primary research in terms of physically going out and gathering the research, while also proving that effective primary research can be done very quickly. When travelling between places, I could think of my ideas and where I would go with them if I were to pursue the concept. This was really beneficial, and from this I take the importance of primary research by visiting places and actually seeing the things being discussed. It opened new doors to new ideas that I otherwise would not have had. Moving forward, and now knowing the importance of primary research in this form, I intend to visit and gain personal responses for substantial primary research when researching my chosen concept.
