The Brief:

You are required to develop ideas for a final series of five manipulated images that are inspired by the theme TRANSFORM. You may choose to explore the idea of metamorphic, transition, change, movement, scale or identity.

During the first term in year 10 you will undergo a series of workshops to develop the beginnings of your project and collect a wide range of images for use towards your final pieces.

Then, as you move forward into year 11 you will explore your own ideas and concepts surrounding this theme in preparation for your final exam. During the exam you will be given a paper from which a starter keyword will be chosen, using images and techniques that you have collated over the coming year, a final piece will be generated in 10 hours, the culmination of 6 weeks preparatory and planned response.
