For your summer pre-course assignment we would like you to explore the meaning of obsession, or what it is to become completely immersed/preoccupied with a particular idea, theme, activity or object. You are asked to select a subject and then find out absolutely everything that you possibly can surrounding this subject.
We expect you to research and explore every aspect of the subject that you have chosen to research. By this we mean the collection of materials relating to your theme, these will take on many forms but are likely to include all of the following:
Objects, writing, music, moving image, websites, books, places, names, people associated with the theme, its uses, how it was made, why was it made, who created it, where can you see it, what your feelings are about it, your relationship with it.
In short, we want you to consider every aspect of your chosen subject.
Please include a variety of source materials, for instance a pile of internet searches does not constitute good research – these will be included of course, but do not rely entirely on these, visit libraries, museums, galleries or anywhere relevant to your subject.
