Phase 6 The Compilation

Phase 6? The Compilation

Collecting and Composing // Chronicled Representation

The final exercise for the semester will focus on your final portfolio. This will be a total collection of work throughout the semester and for every assignment.? It will be important to establish the objectives of the semester, the sequence of information, the hierarchy of the information to be presented, and the clarity of the format, images and text.? Pay special attention to the composition and all of the details to make sure that the project is presented in a way that it strengthens your vision and its main qualities.?

These portfolios will be reviewed by all Second Year Professors and used to establish baselines for grading across the studio sections.? The portfolios will also be used in end of the year award selections, as well as, for CoA archiving, publication and accreditation purposes.? In addition, this portofolio should also be a starting point for collecting information for your own personal portfolios that you might use for future internship applications.?
