A blogged exegesis

May 1st, 2011 · No Comments · PhD

Had a thought the other night. I am writing in Scrivener. In the binder I write a title for each paragraph and each paragraph lives on its own. They can easily be moved around as separate paragraphs. When the writing is printed each title is in bold above each paragraph. This reminds me of the […]

Structure from the destination

November 14th, 2010 · No Comments · PhD

Starting from the ‘destination’ is the key. I have been caught up for months on the ‘journey’, the iterative chronological development of the artefacts/projects to get to the major project. Scrivener points out empathically that a student is discouraged, as he states from ‘writing it up’. In this argument the process of working out the […]

The analysis of the projects

November 13th, 2010 · No Comments · PhD

Ok, so I have gone through the projects/artefacts following the chunks process. Now, I am looking at taking a step back in terms of working towards a structure and analytical framework for the writing up the projects in the exegesis. Returning to the article, ‘Content, structure and orientations of the practice-led exegesis’, the authors raise […]

The nuts and bolts of reflection-in-action

November 8th, 2010 · 1 Comment · PhD

I decided I needed to look further into Schon’s reflection-in-action concept as an ‘epistemology of practice’, in order to define more of a framework for analysing the projects/artefacts I had produced. 1. Look for similarities and differences compared to previous experience. Finding a solution to a specific issue in terms of moving an experiment onwards […]

Reflecting on reflection-in-action

November 4th, 2010 · No Comments · PhD

I am in the process of writing up chunks on each project as it was developed iteratively. I think this process of browsing across the data is useful as a first type of pass over the creative works. In this process the evaluation of the steps through each project seems to be based around a […]

projects on the wall

November 4th, 2010 · No Comments · PhD

Adding to the sticky note visual I decided I also needed to get the projects up on the wall as they occurred and look at the themes that developed over time as trajectories of development in the inquiry. It is great to be able to see what happened up there on the wall!

A paper edit

November 4th, 2010 · No Comments · PhD

I think it is like a paper edit this chunking process. In documentary when you get all the rushes you look through all the material carefully and make notes about what may be useful before the edits gets underway. In a way you are looking for the gold, the must have moments. The must have […]

"Put sticky notes on the wall."

October 24th, 2010 · No Comments · PhD

I am racing to get my PhD writing back on track. Looking at a reference from JY – ‘The KJ-Technique: A Group Process for Establishing Priorities’. (The title of this entry is taken from this article). I decided to bring together the whole of the exegesis using sticky notes. Instead of a group process this […]

Chunky moves

October 20th, 2010 · No Comments · PhD

In regards to what we have called the chunky moves task, which is related to an excerpt ‘Chunks, moves and choreography’ from the chapter ‘Choreographing the dissertation’ in the book. I got the book out and got some context around the excerpt in regards to the chapter and book itself. I found the chosen extract […]

Structure and writing practice

October 18th, 2010 · No Comments · PhD

I have been thinking again recently about the structure of the writing for my exegesis. If I think about this in relation to my media practice, I have moved narrative structure to being determined by the creation of an informal taxonomy. (This to a degree goes around traditional scripting beforehand and replaces montage temporal editing). […]

le petit objet

February 28th, 2009 · No Comments · PhD

I was browsing through the Sydney Biennale 2008 catalogue (p.110) and was intrigued by Jaques Lacan’s notion of the ‘le petit objet‘ which on the surface got me thinking about the idea in terms of my own research, that the representation of reality can be revealed through what is not there, what is absent. Dora […]
