BAMS Medal FeedbackPosted: November 24, 2015
As with every project individually we receive a feedback form like the one shown that highlights in regards to the current status of our work from the sketchbooks to research where we are and if this was the final marking which it isn’t this is only formative with the final one being summative which means the grade overall what I would get. based on this feedback it seems overall that the BAMS medal project has got a overall satisfactory borderline good mark. Technical speaking this means
- Overall 2.2 viewing(Satisfactory) at the moment possible moving into 2.1 viewing(Good)
- Satisfactory mark is between 57-59%
- Good mark is 60-63%
Considering what has gone on so far I am happy to get this level at the time and from the advice i will move to break more into the 2.1 criteria and who knows where it could go from there. Both projects got a thorough breakdown by Zoe to ensure that the mark is fair and gives you the best idea of how you can improve. From the feedback I broke it down to three categories to help me better process the advice given this being
- What Zoe understood the project to be about.
- What she feels the project is lacking and needs more of to reach my own best intentions.
- Questions or things I need to think about when responding to the brief and the message or purpose of the outcome.
The theme of sustainability was seen in a positive light although this is a well used term looking at existing ideas is another good start and can help change and manipulate ideas
There is a great amount of primary research and contextual research but there needs to be more of the latter which will help with formulating the meaning of the medal. The imagery of the two sides of the medal does not clearly present the message so manipulation and rethinking is a must.
- How important is the research to the idea of the message of your medal piece?
- Which works or artists had the biggest most influential mark on your work?
- What is the value?
- How is text used and reflect the message of the two sides?
- Is there intended ambiguity
- Does the imagery create a preserving or destructive vision?
- Is it okay the images don’t show the clear message is it intended to be that way?
- Where would this be positioned in a contextual manner?
- Does this have more than one purpose such as an award?
There is certainly a lot to think about but I am confident I will be able to create a brilliant outcome that will answer the questions and concerns highlighted and I won’t hesitate to ask about things I don’t understand or can’t work out why they have been said.
