Adrian engaged in a range of learning activities relevant to Criterion 1. He compiled a list of thoughts, ideas and concepts to draw upon throughout the year. He documented possible starting points through a concept map, which made links and connections between aspects of his thinking. He also provided focus and direction to his body of work through a written ‘statement of intentions’. Adrian researched a range of artists relevant to his ideas, including Louise Bourgeois and Andy Goldsworthy. He also investigated a number of philosophical theories and cultural contexts such as Maslow’s theories and Japanese tea ceremonies. Finally, Adrian reflected upon his explorations using the explicit language of the Analytical Frameworks.
