Studio B: Polygon Mapping and Presentation Structure

In week two of our IGMD phase two work, we worked as a group to finalize the structure of the presentation and worked on the visual format of different slides. We now know some of the basic ideas we wish to pursue, and completed a polygonal map of the relationships between our objects. In regards to the actual presentation, we decided to expand the artistry of each of our slides to reflect a cross-disciplinary approach.

Over the course of this week, we have each agreed to write up our personal stories about the objects and the contextual review of another group member’s object.
