The above images were researching my first idea for an emotive word, “lonely”.

After exploring the word lonely, I decided that it was too literal and the other word that I really liked from my list was “vulnerable”. I thought it would be really interesting to explore, and might be the beginnings of a more creative project! Below are the beginnings of my research into vulnerability…

First attempt at the line and shape exercise, was way too literal, so I did a second attempt below.

Handwriting translation ^: This page kind of flopped, I started drawing more objects than shapes – thus defeating the purpose of this exercise. So I did a brainstorm with Deb about my word and the images from my moodboard to reset and try this exercise again:

Vulnerable:

  • Exposure / not safe
  • Solitary
  • Cracking
  • Shakey
  • Lack of solidity / fogginess
  • Uncertainty

We also discussed redoing my moodboard one more time, so it meets somewhere in the middle between the feedback I’ve received from Deb and Nina and how I perceive vulnerability.

Handwriting Translation ^: “Not sure if this is enough, but I found this exercise really difficult. My design inspiration usually comes from music, textures, nature, photography, art, problems… So trying to design from a word and then draw the simplest of shapes to then try draping from is really challenging. I definitely need more practice, and can’t wait to see how the drawings impact upon my drape process. The drawings with “⭐️”s are what I think are the most successful from this exercise. I think my best drawings were the least controlled ones. I think because I find it hard to be vulnerable myself, it kind of reflected in my drawings. If I had more time I would like to try this exercise again with different media, and maybe create a messy page of lines, and shapes.
