Research For People Who (Think They) Would Rather Create
EXPECTED RELEASE END JANUARY 2021
How to make an artist research document?
If you have asked yourself that question, this book is for you: it takes you along all the relevant aspects, such as writing style, possible roles of visuals, finding the right topic and approach, formulating your research question and working out your methods.
At its heart are dozens of art & design examples that each illustrate an aspect of creating a thesis, essay, paper of however it is known around you.
You can read this book from cover to cover or you can immediately flip to those subjects that you find most relevant. Ultimately, this book is an invitation to contribute - quite literally with your own examples, comments and questions @RFPWTTWRC - as it aims to help you create your own document.
