focuses on essays about the present and future, searching for descriptions that either make sense of what we are experiencing, or speculate a future that holds up a mirror to the present. For our final project you will stay in this mode of the present by writing a short essay about your own work. Use the ideas we’ve discussed all semester of observation, context, and considering the user, to do a thorough write up of either a complete or in progress piece of your own. This is a chance to practice writing about your own work, as well as to get feedback on it, and could later become a part of your thesis.
Must include an abstract of 50 words or less, an image, and your essay.
