→ Before we go, click through the galleries/exhibitions and find things that resonate with you.
→ Bring a camera/phone and make sure you document the day, including the work inside the galleries and things you come across on your way.
→ Focus on the methodologies of the artists. What would their instructions be if they would give you an assignment to create the next ten images for your archive?
→ At home, retake a look at all images and select the ones that speak to your research inquiry (directly or indirectly) and arrange them on a letter size document.
→ Add a short paragraph to describe in which way these are meaningful to your research process.
→ Export and upload to google drive week 9, “Field School Observations.”
