Spring-Summer semester 2018-2019: self-directed research

The Spring / Summer semester will be focused around developing your skills and interests within the domain of digital culture.


Artifacts of Digital Culture.

This semester is based on self-directed research into digital culture. We start from this research process from an 'artifact' of digital culture. This can be a text you've read, a piece of software, an online community, a concept, an image, a website, a method, a film etc

We will do short laps of 4 weeks of research on a particular topic, meaning you go from initial interest/question to some form of output in 4 weeks.

Documentation assignments

20/5 Describing a work


  • in 200 words or less, describe the project how a visitor would SEE it. Not how it is made, what it is referring to, but just what someone would see/hear/feel/smell as they engage with the project.
  • come up with three keywords that describe your project
  • think of three possible titles for the project

post links to your documentation assignments here:

27/05 Describing intentions and context


  • in 200 words (or less) describe the project terms of your research background.
  • Think of including things like intentions, context, process, starting points.
  • Re-use the keywords from last assignment.

03/06 Documentation finalization

What to hand in:

  • A synthesis of the two 200 word descriptions (the literal one and the one about intentions/background (don't forget to use your keywords!)) into:
    • a 150 word 'long' description
    • a brief description of maximum three sentences
  • A title for the project
  • One main image / still / gif / documentation photo
  • Up to three supporting images

Then make a subpage on your own user page for the project.

You can use last year's project documentation page as an example:


  • Use the Project page example template to fill in your documentation
    • Title is self explanatory
    • For the 'author' field link to your wiki username
    • For 'image', link to the main image (you need to upload those to the wiki first)
    • As year use the current school year (2017-2018)
    • For 'description' use the short three sentence description
    • 'soure' is where a link to your code repository goes, in case you still need to make one use
    • 'url' is for any external URLs that host the project
      • if your project doesn't have a source or external URL where it lives, you can remove those fields.
    • more images are for your extra supporting images
