After feedback on my revised draft, I pulled up the key items that I need to consider in my final draft
- less dense and less informative
- more reflective and critical engagement
- more emphasis on materiality, process, and visual aesthetics
- to relate strongly to my practice and interest of materiality transformation and vulnerability of the body.
- make it really an enquiry into my ideas
- relate to my approach towards the contextual notes for A5

Remark on tools
For my research, brainstorming, outlining, and writing my drafts I used the following tools – all with which I can work on my laptop and my tablet in sync, an important aspect for me when travelling:
- Inspiration: for brainstorming, on the go, visual mapping, connecting and outlining
- Scrivener: for writing and compiling essays, providing structure,
- Endnote: reference database, with pdf and annotations and research notes accumulated, now also an archive of my studies
I do find them very supportive and helpful (although inspiration is the least stable one, not on a Mac, Windows is better). It gives me structure, quick access to information, and space to connect and to relate to. It might be not everyone’s cup of tea, but I am very positive to have found a robust and sustainable working approach. And all three are malleable enough that I can adjust if needed to my way of working.
