The first page of Laura’s folio for Unit 4 states her continued interest in ‘working with the idea of how language has deteriorated and changed over time’. She explains that she intends to shift her focus to the word ‘word’, rather than the phrase ‘lost in translation’ and to work with different media, which she illustrates.

The following pages in her folio are devoted to experiments focusing on word ‘word’, and using different materials to create embossings, coloured monoprints, and a photocopied version of the monoprint. Work samples and annotations using the Analytical Frameworks clearly document Laura’s ongoing experimentation with materials and the progressive refinement of personal concepts.
