3.2 Finding texts: Moot Tales

Identify a range of different kinds of texts as potential starting points for your assignment and use the questions above to unpick them. Try to find texts that challenge you in some way: pick an article about a subject you’re unfamiliar with, pick a journal you’ve never read. Your text could equally well be a dialogue or a set of information you want to work with.
Read and summarise the main points and be mindful of where your creative response
connects with the text. Are you aiming to visualise the conclusion, support the introductory premise or prioritise one aspect of the text over another?
Produce a series of thumbnail drawings that articulate your visual thinking on how you’ll deal with the texts you’ve chosen.
Reflect on how the questions helped you identify a potential starting point. Did you
develop your own line of questions? What decisions did you make about where your
creative choices connect with the text? Use your learning log and/or sketchbook to
document your visual process and thinking.
