New Brief: 

Create a single sheet A1 'VISUAL DOCUMENT that is an experimental A1 Bibliography - a visual LIST and a Typographic document of the writers and literature you have used so far - including examples and including your own cut up Creative writing. Also include for extra text extracts of a brief evalutation or evaluative sentences - process' and feelings of work so far - experiment with drawn and 'organic' shapes. Printing methods,  photocopying tones etc - textures for a SUBTLE background ? and tonal values.

Your text and composition can be experimental and used editorially if you wish =- as in a layout  = and have some accompanying visuals - try to keep it simple palette, two colour or even black and white - so you focus on FORM and lineage / composition - positive and negative space etc ( dont get too focused on your KEY - that can wait )

This is a kind of mapping if you like, of your learning experience and importantly your research.

You must include;

 1.  A BIBLIOGRAPHY on / in  the layout - all boks - artists , magazines , articles referenced 
..  using Two fonts only - use the Family for variety.

2. Show examples / lists of the writers that fit with your previous exercises ie confession cut up, anthropomorphic amalgam & juxtaposition.

3. A rough key to the writers work / text referenced and in your layout - coded or by Font ? - it may be complex and interesting - and can be vague ?  go for expression over Logic on this one - enjoy it - and keep suprising me ! DEADLINE   this thursday 3rd Dec 10.30 am Pin UP   room 310
